I've been listening to Audio Books lately, while I am crafting away. It's hard to read and knit at the same time. I'm sure you can relate.
Some books are good, some not so. And some readers are awesome, some suck. The ones that I don't care for are overly dramatic and tend to stress the wrong words. Ya know, they put the wrong emPHASis on the wrong sylLABle (as Mike Meyer says). Everything comes out sounding like Jim Carrey impersonating Wm Shatner.
But the right book with the right reader is so worth the listening. Almost makes me forget that I'm regretting not reading it. Almost.
