Judith Ivey narrating this tale is an absolute delight. I couldn‘t say whether her Minnesota accents are accurate but I sure am enjoying the heck out of them!

#audiobooks

Christine I adored her narration of this!! And as someone who grew up in Wisconsin and went to college in Minnesota, I found her accents to be pretty darn good! 😁 2d
AlaMich @Christine I‘m going to have to check out other books she‘s narrated. 2d
Reggie I kept reading this with a Southern accent in my head. I had to keep saying Minnesota! 2d

Cathythoughts Interesting 🤔 I have an audible credit... love that southern accent too 2d
AlaMich @Reggie I would be the same if I were reading the print version. Judith Ivey=southern accent to me too. 😆 2d
AlaMich @Cathythoughts I highly recommend it!! 2d

#audiobooks #cozymystery #BunburyVillage
Three short cozy mysteries with well drawn, eclectic village characters. Londoner Alfie McAlister continues what he had thought was to be a peaceful village life in the Cotswolds, but murder keeps rearing its head. Entertaining, short cozy listening.

I have no problem with audiobooks. I listen to a lot of Horrorbabble on YouTube but I don‘t consider it reading. It has introduced me to new authors and some classic horror I had no idea existed but I won‘t mark what I‘ve listened to as a book I have read. Thoughts? Opinions? #audiobooks #audible

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego For myself I used to consider it cheating. But then some Littens made an important point that changed my mind. Being that there are people who can't read in a traditional sense and use audio, and their reading should be (and is) considered valid. I use audio now, mostly rereads and memoirs tho, as I find I don't pay as much attention when I listen vs read. 2w
Dyslexicon13 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I love books regardless and am happy that people experience them however they need or choose to. For me audio is a fun way to experience a story in the car or when I‘m cooking but it doesn‘t give me the same sense on satisfaction that reading provides. 2w

Just a great way to start my day, Salvo making me laugh! These books have me entranced. I'm sorry I just can't stay away! Salvo is so crotchety, ornery and hilarious, even when investigating murders. Oh Mr Camilleri you're a creative genius!

I'm having one of those moments I haven't had in a few years, where I get both melancholy for my late #ADHD diagnosis (at 26) and grateful (better late than never). #Audiobooks are a godsend, library ones exponentially so. It still astounds me I managed to (barely) graduate law school undiagnosed, but this classic of my profession has sat on my shelf unread for 5 years. Now I'm ⅓ of the way through, having only started it 4 hours ago 😊 #Pulitzer

Adored listening to this one. I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to horror so middle grade scary is just about the right amount for me. Thrilled to discover it's going to be a quartet although with the second one just coming out this fall, will clearly be awhile 'til it will be finished. #audiobooks

Trying #audiobooks this one seems to be good. Not sure if it‘s just me, but I had a hard time keeping the characters straight, I think it‘s just because audiobooks are new to me. Still chugging along!

rretzler If you aren‘t used to audiobooks and there are loads of characters, it can sometimes get confusing. Especially if you tend to zone out every once in awhile like I do. I‘ll start thinking about what the author said only to find I missed something. I do love audiobooks though - but the pause and rewind features are extremely helpful! 4w
Macker11 @rretzler yeah! It is my first one and I‘m trying to get the hang of it! I really love the idea of being able to read while I‘m busy! 4w
rretzler I love to listen while in the car and doing laundry and other household chores. I attempt to listen at the grocery store, but can‘t focus on the book as much there. Before going to bed is great if your audiobook platform has a sleep timer, but I tend to rewind a lot the next day. If you are a Kindle/Audible user, the whisper sync feature is great - I usually purchase the audiobook and borrow the ebook to switch back and forth. 4w

Macker11 Yeah I love it in the car! My commute to school starts Monday so that will give me tons of time to listen in the car! @rretzler I‘ve been trying to do it at work when I‘m not busy, it‘s more discreet than having a book on my desk lol (edited) 4w
Clwojick I suggest a good set of headphone for audiobooks! I listen to an absolute ton of them, and it makes a huge difference when you use headphones verses listening to it on speaker. Another suggestion is to find a narrator you like, and choose audiobooks that they narrate. I love Cassandra Campbell and Xe Sands. 4w
Macker11 @Clwojick thank you for this advice ! 4w
