I have never been a big fan of audio books, preferring instead to turn the pages myself. This allows me to skip sections and I also find it frustrating sometimes at how slow some of the audio people speak. I find this to especially be true with would be actors who think they are trying to win an Academy award instead of just reading the damn book while I drive.
This will all change though in a few months. Jaycee Dugard's book about her experience as a kidnap victim is coming out on July 12th. I can;t wait to read it. In this case though, I think I will also get the audio book because Jaycee is the one who reads it on the soundtrack. Do you know how hard that must have been for her? I am sure she had lots of help writing the book, but reading about her experiences aloud must have been heart wrenching and this is a time where I am perfectly willing to wait for as long as it takes for her to read it and won't even try to skip a page.
