 I have not listened to them yet, but I bought them on Audible.  318 hours!!!   You'd have to listen to them for almost a year for an hour a day to get through all 7 books!laugh

I have listen to them all, in fact I am listening to Dragonfly in Amber right now.  I turn them on when I am doing housework or when I am sitting at the computer, if I have nothing new to listen to. Love listening to Davina Porter.

I've listened to all of them (except the last) several times.

I listened to Outlander and I have to say I thought it would never be over.  I have no desire to listen to or read the rest of the series.  I am so glad I only purchased the first one on Audible.  I know I'm outnumbered here.

I can't imagine Porter doing all that reading! Haven't been brave enough to order them yet (except the first one). wink

I am listening to Outlander now.  I take it with me when I go for walks and it sure makes it more enjoyable.  I read the series and have heard a lot about Davina Porter so thought I would give the aubible a try.  I seem to miss out on a lot more than when I was reading it.  My mind tends to wander.  I would definitely read the books vs listening to them.
