So I Want to Get into Audiobooks but I Need Your Help!

I tried audiobooks once before, and that was with Margaret Atwood's The Year of the Flood.  But I loved it so much that I wanted to read the book instead of listen to it.  So that was a fail.  I want to get into audiobooks.  That way I could do two of my favorite things at the same time-read and knit!

The problem is I don't know where to start.  Where do you get your audiobooks?  The library?  What are some good ones to start with?  Are there certain narrators that are amazing and others I should stay away from?

I need your help!


  1. I get mine at the library. They even offer free downloads, so you don't have to get in your car and drive there. I find them useful in the classroom for ensuring all my students are doing their reading. They're also good for long drives. Whatever you do, though, don't load them on your iPod and forget to turn off "shuffle." It took me hours to figure out why I had NO idea what was going on in "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress."

    1. Lol thanks for the tip about shuffle. I'd probably do the same thing. I need to renew my library card so once I do that I can't wait to check out some audio books!

      Thanks for your input, btw :)
