I've only started listening to books on CDs in the past year or so. I started with the Harry Potter series and my older boys kids have loved them. I've listened to a few other audiobooks but I've never put them on my list of books that I've read.
Oh, I'd much rather read than listen to a book any day. It's just that a friend mentioned that she just didn't have time for actual reading anymore and the only way to get in her reading fix was to listen to audiobooks in the car. I thought it would be a great idea b/c honestly I was getting a bit tired of listening to the Wiggles all the time.
I started with the Harry Potter series. The reader, Jim Dale, is amazing! He does different voices for every character. Ty, my oldest, started asking to listen to Harry Potter whenever we got into the car.
I've tried a couple of other audiobooks and they've been eh. But they are just for the car rides. We like going on road trips and it works out nice. I've even gotten Ty a portable CD player so he can listen to his books on CDs on his own. He's listened to Inkspell, Wind in the Willows, The Magic Treehouse series... He likes being able to listen to his own thing while we play kiddie music for the little ones.
I borrow these little playaway audiobooks from the library to listen to when I work out at the gym. I haven't tried it out yet, but I was getting a bit bored working out and staring into space.
