When was the last time you read a classic? If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a list of classics you’ve been meaning to read. Maybe you read the Cliff Notes in high school or skimmed Proust in college or maybe you’ve just been meaning to get around to WAR AND PEACE one of these days.
I’ve got a list longer than my arm of books I plan to read… yet somehow I can’t quite get to the classics. Alas, as it turns out, I have plenty of time in the car. So I finally decided to tackle a classic audio style – and I’m glad I did! At the moment I’m about 1/5th of the way through Ayn Rand’s ATLAS SHRUGGED and I’m totally into it. Kind of don’t want to get out of the car when I get to my destination.
If the idea of listening doesn’t seem as pure to as reading, well, I totally understand that… but if you weren’t going to get around to it for another 10 years anyway, audio is a great alternative.
Here are a couple you may not have realized you could get your hands on:
And check it out… TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is read by Sissy Space and LOLITA is read by Jeremy Irons, so you’ll be in for a pretty great experience! Are you an audiobook fan? Ever tried a classic on audio? Did it work for you?
