I also audiobooked Wicked by Gregory Maguire. I REALLY wanted to read it. I bought the book, tried to read it numerous times but I just couldn't get into it. So I tried the audiobook version -- but I couldn't get into that either.
I do have a couple other audiobooks on my ipod that I have available whenever I feel the need. But it's been a couple years since I had the desire to listen to one. My Grandmother listens to audiobooks in the kitchen when she's cooking and/or sitting there clipping coupons and stuff -- that'll probably be me one day. I can see it in my crystal ball...I don't know how I feel about that yet.
I AM embarrassed to admit that I have listened to audiobooks though. I don't know why.
Maybe because I feel like it's kind of a cheat. Can you say you "read" a book ... if you technically listened to them?
Should I feel embarrassed about that?!
