Books on Tape


My boss swears by books on tape. She buys alot of them and she told me I could borrow some anytime for my commute or for traveling to see Jason. I took one with me to Missouri this weekend. Even though Jason was with me, he said he was tired. That way, he could sleep and I could listen to the book.

The book I borrowed was Tess Gerritsen's "Body Double." Maybe its because so many people I know are pregnant but this book freaked me out. I am so glad I didn't borrow it for a trip that I was taking alone! I think I would enjoy reading it better. Unfortunately the voice on the CD's was Anne Heche... I could think of worse voices to hear... Rosanne Barr or Fran Drescher come to mind.. but her voice became a little annoying. If you are up for a good thriller, and you are not pregnant, you could give this book a try.

On Aprils and I move out here to Berkeley, we got a couple of audio books. One was "freakanomics" and I can't remember the other one. Something about this guy trying to become the worlds smartest person by reading the encyclopedia. They're both non-fiction, and sound a bit boring but I thought both was pretty fascinating.

One time, I thought I would try a "star wars" audio book, and talk about something fun. Everyone had different voices, there were back ground laser blast and R2D2 beeps. It was fun.
