Audop books

Audio books are almost like these reflections in the puddle.

They are there and they are not.

They give almost the trees and the sky and the clouds and sunny winter day, yet in fact it is a puddle, and they are not the same.

They do give more (and also less), the more is the inflection and prononciation and how words blend together. I listen differently to the story, and I can listen again and again when something catches my ear.

Listening, instead of reading, is a new experience to me. A fascinating experience. A discovery.


  1. I enjoy audio books, as long as the reading is good. I'm considerimg making a recording of the book I'm writing...

  2. Great idea Rachel, any possibility to listen to parts of it soon? what are you writing about?
