I’ve got quite a bit of driving to do in the days ahead, so I clicked on my handy iTunes store to see what audiobooks are available. At $35.00, on average, I was just about to give up.
(They have a website but I think you’re better off just looking at the catalog in iTunes.)
I’ve been downloading books all night. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Grimms’ Fairy Tales. The Oz books. Bleak House. House of Mirth. Jabberwocky. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The Waste Land. Wind in the Willows. And I’m only on page 7 of 76.
I can’t wait to hit the road. Even in this wicked snowicane, I can’t wait to hit the road! Woohooo!

Um. The people reading these suck super ass. I guess that’s why audiobooks cost $35. Seems a small price to pay for a decent reader. Dammit. Back to dreading the drive again. Can anyone recommend a good audiobook? And then I’ll look forward to it again. (Last time I listened to Anthony Doerr’s About Grace. Great reader.)
