I love Books on Tape. I used to be embarrassed to admit it, but I’ve given up. Now the only question is whether to say, in idle conversation, that I “read” such and such a book, or to say that I listened to it, but hey that’s just as good. I have a half hour commute, and listening to good books has become one of the high points of my day. Recently “reads”: The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain and I, Claudius by Robert Graves.
