Advent Calendar, box no. 2 - Audio books

Are you into audio books? I am really not, although I am trying. I have used them a couple of times driving to Sweden and it has been good company. But somehow, I cannot concentrate on the book so good when I am driving.

However, one should not give up too easy. I have noticed that it is quite good to use when you are doing your household chores. So, I looked around to find a suitable app to use and found Audible (not sponsored post). You get one free credit a month and for the moment it is more than enough for me. I don't go through one audiobook a month for the time being, so there are a few waiting for me.

I started out with The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure, but could not continue. I don't know if it was that I did not like the narrator, but the story did not engage me. The second try is much better. I am now listening to The End of the Affair by Graham Greene. Can you guess who is narrating? Colin Firth! You just can't dislike anything he narrates I think. Wonderful voice and English accent. That I am a fan of Graham Greene makes it even better. I really love this book and it is soon finished.

Two other audio books are lining up. The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict, about Einsteins wife. Looking really forward to this one which should be interesting. The other is a non-fiction called A Little History of Religion by Richard Holloway. Always interesting topic.

What are your ideas about audio books? Something useful when you can not sit down and read? Any favourite books and/or narrators?

Have a wonderful Saturday.
