Booking Through Thursday

1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?

2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?

3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?

I was read to a lot during my childhood. My mom read to me and to my sister every night from many favorite fairy tale books. My sister would get a little antsy during the readings, but I was always fascinated by the stories. Surprisingly, I don't really like to be read to now. I'm not a huge fan of audio books, I prefer to have my own eyes on the book, and take my own speed reading.

I do read out loud to other people, though, I have no problem with doing that, and in fact have done it a lot in different classes.

How about you?

That's another thing I didn't mention, the speed of the narrator. I think I read pretty quickly, and I feel like maybe an AB would slow me down, so to speak.

(your layout is so gorgeous!)

I agree about audio books. I would much rather get through a book at my pace!

Even as a child I hated being read to. I prefer doing it on my own. Plus, I'm a very visual person. I miss a lot if I'm just listening to it.

I agree, I am not into audio books myself.
