|Recording an audio book|
This week, let's look at audio books! My commute to work is an hour each way, and I love listening to a good book while I negotiate the Los Angeles area freeway system.
Have you ever tried to read a physical book and couldn't get into it, but tried again with the audio book and loved it? I've done this several times. The most memorable was The Martian. I only got through about 4 chapters in the physical book before I put it down. I LOVED the audio book and laughed so much there was one occasion when I had to pull over to the side of the freeway because I was laughing so hard I couldn't see where I was going!
I write MG and I've noticed that there are more MG audio books than there ever were before. Some are CD, others are Playaway. But I can read both in my car. This is great because it means I can read more. It's hard for me to find the time to read print books lately.
