Audiobook are you currently reading/you read most recently: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J,K. Rowling, read by Stephen Fry
Impressions?: I adore it! Those of you who read my post on how I “found” audiobooks know that the Harry Potter books narrated by Stephen Fry was how I fell in love with audiobooks, so when I got a notice from BookDepository saying that Prisoner of Azkaban was only €20 I knew I needed to buy it. I have all the other books read by Jim Dale curtsey of a very nice library in a town that shall remain nameless but this one I was missing.
How long you’ve been listening to audiobooks: I know we had some books on cassette tape when I was little, you know the kind where it plinged when you were supposed to turn pages, but as an adult I’ve only been listening for about 3 years. Now I’m hooked.
First audiobook you ever listened to: Not counting the children’s ones (where I can’t remember) It was one of the Harry Potter books, but I cannot remember which one. I think it might have been The Order of the Phoenix, narrated by Stephen Fry
Favorite audiobook title: Difficult to answer. But I am going to say the Harry Potter books.
Favorite narrator: Stephen Fry! Hands down. He is amazing. I also really like when the author themselves narrates their work. I really liked 1776 written and narrated by David McCullough.
How do you choose what to listen to versus read? Really it depends on what strikes my fancy when I get my Audible.com credits every month. Sometimes I pick books I’ve already read in print because of my previous experiences of discovering new things. Sometimes I pick new to me books. Sometimes I might by a book in the sale there as well. It is pretty much a case of what I am in the mood for.
