I have a 45 minute commute to and from work everyday that I usually fill with music, phone conversations, or just plain ol’ silence (especially after a particularly trying day listening to screaming children). I also often complain that I don’t have enough time to read all of the books I want to read. Co-workers have often suggested I listen to audiobooks during my drive but I’ve always shrugged them off in the past. I thought I wouldn’t be able to concentrate, or that I’d somehow miss something important by listening and not reading.
Well, I finally took their advice and snagged the first book in the series by Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning. The narration was read by Tim Curry and I have to admit, I absolutely loved it! This is going to be a great way for me to catch up on some of the titles I should know but that for whatever reason constantly get pushed to the bottom of my pile.
