I listen to my kindle on text to speech. I'm so used to the computer voice that anytime I get an actual audio book it's too much for me. It's all emotion and different voices - it freaks me out a bit when a woman tries to do a male voice. It kind of takes me out of the moment.


I love to listen to my books while I do chores like laundry or dishes!


I do check out library books on my kindle also

I listened to most of the Outlander series on Audiobooks and loved them! It was great to hear the Scottish Accents and have the Gaelic pronounced properly.

Davina Porter is the *best* narrator. The Best. She has ruined audiobooks for me by other narrators. I still listen to them but you can always tell that they are "doing voices/accents" whereas she becomes the character and the sheer range of voices and accents are incredible.
