I have a question, does the level of enjoyment differ when you're hearing a story and when you're reading it?

Why yes it does...The Crimson King...and if you really get into it, it connects to The Stand also - via "abalah" (sp?)
And the other poster, I love listening to books - and man is it easy to get distracted or drift off into thoughts while listening, but I find I can do that while reading too...lol
It's just a drive a lot and so to fill the time, I like to listen...
Why did I buy another VW?
Any geeks like me try the Star Wars series. Just ordered Dark Empire book 1.
I also ordered the Art of War Sun Tzu. I read it a few times. So I figured why not give it a listen.
Last thing, is there any swaps set up through Vortex, an audiobook exchange on honor system?

I've never been so ashamed to laugh out loud so much by myself in the car.

Guess I will bump this thread, been listening to lots of audiobooks lately. Been doing a lot of home-improvement type work and I like to have something a bit more interesting than music to listen to. And of course I take them with me in the car as well.
Listened to the complete unabridged Harry Potter series from beginning to end. Probably the third or fourth time through on those. Narrated by Jim Dale. Quite good.
If you like HP, you will probably also like the Artemis Fowl series as well. There are 7 books in that series, too, and I highly recommend them.
I've also gone through the two Dirk Gently books which the late great Douglas Adams reads himself - those are favorites of mine. I have The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as read by Stephen Fry, which was OK... while a fan of his, I didn't particularly care for his style. I've been meaning to check out the rest of the series, which is read by Martin Freeman, who played Arthur Dent in the movie. I've listened to the Audible samples and already think he does a better job.
Also have the first two Discworld books, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic. To be honest I wasn't too thrilled with the guy they got to read those, but they're not bad.
Currently have The Night Circus up next, also read be Jim Dale. Am actually reading the book right now... I'd much rather read something for myself the first time through!
