AudioBook Log

For over a year I’ve been commuting for almost 2 hours a day, and in an attempt to stave-off potentially lethal boredom, I’ve been passing the time listening to audiobooks. Here’s what I’ve been reading/listening to:

Note, format is: title (year), authors (readers)

While all of the books were good, the quality of the audiobook depends almost entirely on the voice of the person reading it. So far my favorites are Tom Weiner’s rich baritone and Richard Dawkins’ pleasant english accent. By far the worst, though, is anything read by Carl Sagan: I can highly recommend Carl’s plodding pace and odd word emphasis to insomniacs who don’t respond to strong drugs.
