As most of you know, I am going to Disney World tomorrow! I am very excited, but here’s the catch. We are driving, and Disney is about 10 hours of driving from where I live. In the past years, I have read books almost the entire way (crazy, I know). But lately, my motion sickness/seasickness has gotten worse. Not to mention my vision (I have to wear reading glasses). I decided that it was high time I check out an audiobook.
I started listening to this while packing this afternoon! Surprisingly, it is only 4 hours long. I am enjoying it so far! The narration helps with the otherwise slightly boring (sorry, Jane) book.
I haven’t started this one yet, because it is something like 14 hours long and I want to use that on the drive! I’ve heard great and terrible things about this book. I can’t wait to read…. err listen for myself and decide!
How did I miss the hype for this? I’m pretty sure it came out a while ago, but still! I’ll be listening to this one on the way back, I believe!
I will be reviewing the two modern ones (Jane Eyre too, maybe). I am also wondering about how an audiobook affects your ability to review a book. So far, I have noticed that I am more interested and am paying attention to details I would have missed before. I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic though …
I really wish I didn’t have to take such a huge break from posting, guys!! I miss being on a regular schedule, what with the roof and all that mess. I will hopefully be back and posting on next Friday. If something changes, it may be later.
I have also been told that there is a developing tropical storm in the Gulf that very well could hit us while we are in Florida. If so, I will probably buy the hotel’s wi-fi and post (because frankly, hotel for 2 days straight=claustrophobia and boredom). The chance of an actual hurricane is pretty slim, but the chance I will get super bored and read all bajillion books I’m bringing is high! That means more reviews!
Lastly, I will be tweeting LIVE from Disney World! If you don’t already follow me, I highly suggest doing so, because that is the only way I can update about books I’m reading, hurricanes, and FUN! If you don’t have a twitter, just look in my blog sidebar. It shows my latest tweet! (I’m @OliviasOpinions)
Miss you bunches!
P.S. I CAN respond to @ messages from my phone (even without wi-fi) so if you have a question, ask! 😉
