    My husband and I listen to the Harry Potter books whenever we work on our house (we're fixing up a 1930s bungalow). It's a great way to forget the drudgery of painting trim, and Jim Dale is a fantastic storyteller.

    I'm jealous of all of you who've heard Tim Curry! I keep meaning to check those out. I love the books, and I'm sure he's just perfect for the job. I also keep meaning to check out The Dive from Clausen's Pier, because it's read by Scarlett Johansson. And I am seriously considering writing Kiefer Sutherland to ask him to start recording audiobooks. His voice just does it for me.

    i love audio books for when im cleaning...thats the only thing that can get me through organizing my desk.

    donna jo napoli books are good for background noise, plus her stories are interesting. its young adult fiction/fantasy, like the fairy tales retold.

    you can get audio books at your local library too. all you need is a library card. A lot of the books are classics but some are recent best sellers as well.

    this will cut down on having to spend money on audio books.

    also a audio book trade withing a group of friends is a good idea as well.

    I get all of my audio books through the library, this summer I've listened to the Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, the first 6 Harry Potters and many more.

    I get so totally engrossed in what I'm doing, that I tend to completely forget that I'm listening to something. When a cd finishes playing, I may not notice for a good 15 minutes. Audio books may not be such a good idea for me while I'm working!
