Anyone else like them? I work outside all day, usually by myself, and a good audiobook really makes the time go by faster. Although I kinda feel like I'm cheating. If I've listened to Hugo's Les Miserables from start to finish, can I really say that I've read it?

I've recently been a member of Audible, which I feels like is kind of a rip off... Its 15 bucks a month and you can download one book per month. If theres a better way, someone please let me know.

So far on my list I have

Les Miserables (about 3/10 of the way through)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (only completed a sample, but it was great)
...it was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat

I have several books on Audible from signing up for the free trial (to get a free book), then trying to quit (which made them offer me another), then trying to quit again immediately after (which gave me another). Then I actually quit.

Yeah in all honesty, for a lot of books I really prefer actually reading them. I'm not sure all work as audio.

I got the Alan Partridge audiobook though, which is excellent as you'd expect being read by Steve Coogan himself.

I have listened to a bunch of short stories read by famous actors in the last few weeks. Especially poetry I prefer if someone else reads it as I am always unsure how the author intended me to read them.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.
