Anyway, we have been passing the time with audio books since the pressure behind our eyes makes reading painful.
My experience with audio books is extremely limited. I vaguely remember being tortured with them as a kid on family trips and have studiously avoided them since.
BUT the free release of Karen Marie Moning's Darkfever brought me back around. I listed to Joyce Bean's drawling tone during my afternoon walks for a while and was pleasantly surprised.
Now we have moved on to Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron and my husband is entranced. That is saying a lot, trust me. Holter Graham performs beautifully, pulling the listener into the story so deep that the characters come alive. Tone, pace, lilt and volume all play throughout his voice to create the world Kenyon imagined. Wonderful.
