  1. It's a brilliant idea Rita, I wish more books were available. I have a subscription with Audible - the most cost-effective way to buy the books - and I listen to them in the car. My holiday isn't full of baking, but it *is* full of chauffeuring everyone about, so listening in the car is my little escape :)

  2. Hi, Rita - I hadn't thought of listening to a book while I clean and bake. Duh! (*slaps forehead*) I've read your book, and I think it must make a fabulous audio book. :)

  3. Clare I can't listen in the car if I'm driving. I get too involved in the story.

  5. LOVE audio books and this is one I've got on my TBR list! I've had several friends recommend it to me. I, in turn, recommended ONLY FEAR, to them. :-)

  6. My comment keeps getting eaten!!! Rita, I had never thought about listening to audio books while baking and cleaning. I usually listen while I'm on the bike doing my daily exercise. I'll have to give your things a try. Thanks. Kathy Ivan

  7. I used to live quite a ways out of town and loved to get those books on tape from the library. This year I'm hoping Santa will bring me an iPod so I can use it to listen to books. Wait--you *can* listen to books on iPods, right?

  8. Kara, thank you. And yes I recommend ONLY FEAR also. In fact if you go down the list of names on the right-hand side of the page I'm sure you'll find a gazillion great idea books.

  9. Kathy, blogger has been giving me fits today also. I've had to login and logout several times. Listening to books has helped me do things that I absolutely hate to do.

  10. Marcelle, yes you can use an iPod to listen to audio books. If you have an E–reader you can send your audio books to it also.

  11. I love listening to Audio books! I really didn't think I'd like it at first, but I gave them a try anyway and became hooked!
    I started out with nonfiction books, and found I liked those read by the author. Then I started moving into all the fiction books I usually devour with my eyes and imagination :-)
    Now I devour many of the books with my ears and imagiation :-) I do not have a favorite narrator yet, but there are quite a few I like.
    I did listen to the sample of Under Fire on Audible, and I do like how Gabra Zackman read your work.

  12. Dorthy, thanks for stopping by. I also like nonfiction books read by the authors. They can be a hoot. I have a funny story about the first time I listen to a book that had sound effects. It was James Patterson's Mary Mary and I was walking on the beach really engrossed in the story and three gunshots rang out. Well here I was on my hands and knees looking around for the shooter. LOL and people were making a wide circle around me.

  13. I like to listen to audiobooks in addition to a book I am reading to enrich a reading experience. I'm a visual reader so I like to read a book but I don't mind listening to an audio version after I've done so. I think audiobooks are a great for enticing for reaching a wider audience. Some people may not have time to read or may not, or have sight difficulty but an audio version still enables them to enjoy a story. I think narrators are pretty important in bringing a story to life.

  14. Hi Na. I think narrators are very important. There is an author whose books I love but I will not listen to one of them because of the narrator. And he has the same narrator for every single one of his books. Ugg!
    Thanks for stopping by.

  15. I'm an audio book virgin. There I've said it. But, I am intrigued with the idea and can definitely see the advantage, especially at the gym. I'm wishing mega sales, Rita.

  16. Hi Autumn, yes definitely an advantage at the gym. You won't want your workout to end. LOL Talk about getting lost in the story.

  19. I always forget about getting an audio book to listen to. Thank you for the chance to listen to a book. Happy Holidays!

  20. The first audio books I listened to were Harry Potter narrated by Jim Dale. Although I had read the books, the audio added another dimension.

    Audio books became a staple in our household as my father's sight deteriorated.

    I don't have a favorite narrator and enjoy listening to books in different genres on my mp3 player.

  21. Mary, My son had an hour and a half drive each way to work and he listened to the Harry Potter books. He loved them.

  22. I would love to zone out with an audio book! My 2 little boys play VERY loudly, lol so it is hard to stay focused in a book. But with some head phones on... Ahh that would be wonderful! =D
    Thank you for the chance to win
