So, I requested my first audio book from the library and have been a happy camper ever since. I drive 2.5-3 hours a day for work and this little gem has saved me. Traffic doesn't bother me as much, I don't mind waiting in my car if I arrive somewhere early, and I find myself bummed out when I have passengers in my car and have to turn the book off for my guests.
So, since my sister is so cool, here is a picture of her and her bf on opening night of the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows film in matching shirts.
Isn't this cute? True love I tell you!
Besides my new found obsession with Harry Potter, listening to audio books have been the new best thing since sliced bread. The HP books are narrated by Jim Dale who does different voices for the characters and it's so entertaining! It's not cheesy at all and the voices sound very similar to the characters in the movie. The CDs book is read in 3-5 minute intervals so it's easy to listen to a piece again if you didn't catch it, started daydreaming, or you were laughing so hard that you missed some of it. For anyone who has a long drive or even a short drive for that matter, I would HIGHLY suggest trying audio books for the ride.
Since I've seen all of the movies (except for the new one, I'm waiting to read the book first) it's easy to listen to the books and visual the scenes and characters. I'm sure that even listening to a book where I've never seen the movie, it would still be the same since I do that subconsciously when reading anyways.
