Right now I am listening to Steven Campbell's Hard Luck Hank: The Prince of Suck. It's the third novel in the series. If you enjoy humorous SF combined with action and a bit of a mystery, the Hard Luck Hank books might be for you.

It's been a while since I commented on this thread, and will pop back in when I have more time to mention a few books that I've listened too over the past few months.

Currently listening to Dreamland by Sam Quinones. It chronicles the rise of the heroin use in the USA. It's interesting, but gets tedious in parts.

Currently listening to Steven Campbell's next Hard Luck Hank book: Hard Luck Hank: Stank Delicious

Fun, interesting listen, as always from Campbell.

Outlining Your Novel by K. M. Weiland.

It's given me something to focus on and I panic less about how to start. It's a good book and offers honest advice.

I and my family are re-listening to Steven Campbell's Hard Luck Hank: Stank Delicious. (a few posts back, you can see where I mentioned listening to it the first time).

All are enjoying it once again. Hank, the main character is hilarious in his commentary and observations, as well as his actions.

I tend to enjoy re-listening to novels, just like re-reading some novels, especially after a bit of time has passed.

Actually none.

I would only listen while driving in my car, but these days the trips are too short to make listening to books worthwhile.
And they are less frequent making it harder to follow what is going on.

If I start a book I like to get through all of it within a couple of days or so.
Reading allows me to finish before I forget what the first part was about.

Maybe if I could find a language tape/book that had very short lessons I might try that.

I used to commute to work at 1/2 hour+ each way so listening to tapes made sense then.

Audiobooks are not for everyone or for everyone's schedule/routine.

I listen while driving places, but also while doing mundane things like washing dishes or staining the fence.

Reading is faster (getting through a book) but listening to an audiobook when reading isn't a viable option, for me, makes sense.
