As I said, my audiobook listening is separate from my A to Z reading. There was just no way to coordinate the two.
This year I’ve been focusing on two series. I’ve continued with the Mrs. Pollifax series that I started last year. Barbara Rosenblat reads these and I think she could read the dictionary and make it entertaining. The new series I started this year is the No. 1 Ladies Detective Series. Lisette Lecat who does just a fabulous job with the voices and accents reads these. I’ve slipped in a couple of others this year – including the first of the Aunt Dimity series that was fun. The Janet Evanovich was a road trip book for us when we went down to the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland in April.
Here’s the 2006 list (to date) of the audiobooks I’ve finished:
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
Mrs Pollifax and the Hong Kong Buddha by Dorothy Gilman
Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith
Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle by Dorothy Gilman
Morality for Beautiful Girls by Alexander McCall Smith
Mrs. Pollifax and the Whirling Dervish by Dorothy Gilman
The Kalahari Typing School for Men by Alexander McCall Smith
Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton
Seven Up by Janet Evanovich
Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief by Dorothy Gilman
The Full Cupboard of Life by Alexander McCall Smith

I’m currently listening to A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I’m on the second to last CD and should be done soon.
