Dan Brown – Angels and Demons
I read the Divinci Code and really liked it. This one was so much better than the movie. I think I remember seeing Dan Brown on iTunes, but I can’t remember if there were any audible.com picks. Its amazing the price difference. Some of the books on there can run $30! Audible books are only like $12.95. Eventually I’ll have the talking books service, which is an audio service for the blind. Its all done by mail, and there’s a special player and special tapes. I’m not sure I’m going to like this though, because I’m so used to professional narrators, and talking books doesn’t make a production about recording books like audio books do. Its crazy how expensive they are though. I eventually collected all the Harry Potter books on cd. 2 were given to me for Christmas, and the rest I purchased. I got 2 from Borders I think, and then I wised up and began ordering from amazon.com. The ones at Broders were like $70! But I think Harry Potter is worth it 😉 I got caught up in just reading them over and over. I used to listen to a lot of talk radio, but it just got too depressing, so I stuck to Harry Potter; a nice fantasy land.
Last Christmas, my boyfriend’s sister in law gave me a ton of audio books that she had when she used to commute for work. We had to ship them back after us lol. I call it my mystery box of books, because I never know what I’ll pull out. I finally got out of the Harry Potter cycle and went back to the mystery box. I just read a Mary Higgins Clark book, No Place Like Home I think it was. She’s ok…but not a favorite. Especially if her daughter narrates, then they’re pretty awful haha! After that one, I pulled out a Janet Ivonovich book. I just love her. Especially when narrated by Lorelei King. She’s fabulous. If I ever write a book, I want her to narrate. I don’t remember the title of that one.
Today I pulled out The Vampire Armand, which I read forever ago during my Anne Rice kick. I think I’ll look for more of her vampire books on iTunes. I can also download books from the library, but its incredibly complicated, so I haven’t looked into that yet. apparently, talking books has downloadable books too. I’m so grateful for online books, because I can have a cd book going in the player, which my headphones don’t work on, and a book going on my computer that I can listen to when football is on 😉
