2011 Audio Book Challenge Jan-March

I have been doing well on this challenge for the year. I love a good audiobook on my long commute to school. It definitely makes the miles zip by! Since January I have listened to six audio books so I have already met my goal! I am going to try to get to Addicted now which is 12 audiobooks.

1. Jane Eyre Charlotte Bronte
I never really liked Jane Eyre when I was younger. It was a very depressing, sad book. But I really enjoyed it this time. The people who read it had good voices and made it interesting so that helped. I always thought that Mr. Rochester had deliberately burned down the house with his wife in it but that wasn't the case. I am glad I gave this book another chance!

2. Two Dollar Bill Stuart Woods
I decided to read this book because my dad told me the author was from the small town he grew up in. The book was a little hokey in places and typical of an adventure/suspense/mysery story.

3. Stone Cold David Baldacci
I love David Baldacci books and I enjoyed this Camel Club book. It was the first Camel Club I read even though it is in the middle of the series. I really liked this audiobook because it had some nice sound effects which I felt added to the drama. It was a great story and kept me in the car long after I would reach my destination!

4. The City of Ember Jeanne DuPrau.
I got this audio book to listen to on the way to Florida for spring break. My sister likes these types of books like I do so I figured it would be something we could both enjoy. We were a little disappointed and felt the book dragged too much. They seemed to stretch out parts too much and not make other parts longer that could have been more exciting. However I probably will still read or listen to the other three books in the series.

5. Inkheart Cornelia Funke
We also listened to this on our spring break trip and I loved it. I loved the concept of it and I loved the story. I always love a good story with people who are passionate about books!

6. Don't Blink James Patterson
This book started out so gross at the beginning that I almost turned it off. But it got better and the story intrigued me and pulled me in.
