2006 Audiobooks (so far)

>> Tuesday, July 18, 2006

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
Mrs. Pollifax Pursued by Dorothy Gilman
Mrs. Pollifax and the Lion Killer by Dorothy Gilman

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.

Are you finding that the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency is loosing steam? I made to Full Cupboard of Life and decided to quit. I agree that Lecat does a wonderful job of reading.

BTW I'm so envious that you live in OR. Have visited the NW 3 summers in a row and absolutely love it. The Shakespeare Festival in Ashland sounds heavenly.

I've only listened to the #1 Ladies Detective Agency Series. I just love Lisette Lecat's reading. I haven't lost interest yet, but I don't think I'd want to listen to the whole series back to back. I prefer to jump around between genres and styles.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to leave a comment. I read and respond them here although not always right away. If you would prefer an email response let me know.
