I am reading Jane Eyre for the first time and it is so engaging! Actually, to be honest, I am listening to it more than reading, and it is lovely. I visited Jacob and Faith over the long weekend, and anticipating the long drive, I signed up for Audible and downloaded Bossypants (Tina Fey's book. It's so funny and interesting). On a whim, I also downloaded Jane Eyre. It is free on Audible and is promoted as being available in "Whispersync" so if you are reading it on your Kindle it syncs automatically to where you are in the audiobook.
Anyway, I finished Bossypants and started Jane Eyre on the last leg of the trip and immediately got wrapped up in the story. Lo and behold, this afternoon when I had a chance to read a little at home, the Kindle book opened right to where I was in the recording. Fun.
Do you like the classics? I love the idea of reading more classics and now that I have discovered that I like audio books, I may be reading/listening to many more!
PS--Faith used to listen to books on tape every single night during her childhood. The Harry Potter books, the Ramona books, and The Island of the Blue Dolphins were particular favorites that she listened to multiple, multiple times.
PPS--not a sponsored post; hopefully that's clear. I am just loving this new format, especially since I commute to work.
PPPS--thanks for those of you who checked in on me. You are sweet.
