"As I'm sure you know, a good night's sleep helps you perform well in school; and so, if you are a student, you should always get a good night's sleep, unless you've come to the good part of your book - then you should stay up all night & let your schoolwork fall by the wayside."

Anne Bogel said that this is fantastic on audio, so here we go! Both of my girls really enjoyed this (in print). #currentread #currentlyreading #audiobook #readingwithmyears

Mehso-so

Like many, I read these as a child (still own my copies from the 70's!) & am now revisiting them on audio. This was a tough one to get through, but I remember that it was my least favorite of the series. This is nothing against Alex Jennings, who was a good narrator. Just put a hold on Prince Caspian, which is read by Lynn Redgrave, so I'm looking forward to that! #readingwithmyears

megnews My least favorite as well 5mo

xicanti I listened to the series a few years ago and got a real kick out of all the celebrities they hired to perform the books! 7mo
mom2bugnbee @xicanti I've already put a hold on the next one! As I'm age 46, it's no surprise that I read these as a child, but haven't revisited them in decades. Looking forward to it! 7mo

Believe it or not, I've never read this! So, I thought that a narration by Kate Winslet would be perfect! #currentread #currentlyreading #audiobook #readingwithmyears

Ruri_kaichou I really enjoyed her narrating! 8mo

Looking forward to this one! It's been decades since I read it. Already loving Dan Stevens' voicing of Poirot. #currentread #currentlyreading #audiobook #readingwithmyears

ferskner He's an amazing narrator! 9mo
mom2bugnbee @ferskner He really is! I had no idea that he was such a master of accents! 9mo
quanners This was fun to listen to. His Poirot is fantastic and there are some moments that are hilarious. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. 9mo
mom2bugnbee @quanners It was fabulous. I just realized I never posted about it, and I need to do so. I hope he narrates more Christie! 9mo

Also, I'm currently re-"read"ing this by listening to it on audio.

I'm a huge Tom Hanks fan. Just ask @britt_brooke . ? I read this when it first came out, but just recently learned that he reads the audiobook (why this didn't occur to me earlier, I have no idea), so I just had to borrow it from the library to listen. ☺ #currentread #currentlyreading #audiobook #readingwithmyears #libby

britt_brooke I will forever think of you every time I see him or hear his name. 🤗 Enjoy your reread! I listened to the audio and he does a great job reading the stories. 11mo
GypsyKat I really enjoyed this on one audio. I read it a little over a year ago, so it may be time for a reread. 😊 11mo

Six. Months.

That's how long my library wait was for this audiobook. Is it gonna be worth it, Littens? 😉 (Yes, I'm a Gaiman newbie. I've only read/listened to Norse Mythology.)

Tamra It‘s great! 13mo
TheKidUpstairs Yes! ❤❤❤❤ 13mo
TNbookworm I love this book! 13mo
CouronneDhiver I‘ve only tried one Gaiman book - his voice is captivating, but the story was only so-so for me 13mo

I'm in, @Samplergal ! I'm #currentlyreading The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron and... For the first time ever, I'm listening to Harry Potter, narrated by Stephen Fry. I'm nearly done with HP and SS. #readingwithmyears

Samplergal Yay! This is an easy one! Have fun! 13mo
