maybe i should do that instead of reading. i read ALOT. i can read fast and just go through books like crazy. years ago i had a driving job and i listened to audio books for a while then, but, not long enough to pick up the habit. thanks for the good idea.
I am very particular about my audio books because I only listen to them while I'm working out. That means that they have to have the right pace, the right reader, and a plot structure that does not annoy me. I've eliminated several authors because the reader so bad it was painful to listen to (I swear one was chewing gum and making slurping sounds!!) or because the plot or characters made me roll my eyes too much.
The authors I stick with include Michael Connelly, John Sandford's Prey series or his Virgil Flowers series (but none of this other books), James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman, and some others I've forgotten.

"A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson. Took awhile to get used to his speaking/reading style, but it was so funny!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
