So a while back I tried to read my very first Jane Austen book, Sense & Sensibility. I think I got to page 29 and had to turn it back into the library. I just couldn't do it AT ALL. First of all, the print was TEENY TINY. Second of all, I found it just...hard to get into.

So for my Play it again Sam part of the HF challenges this year, I chose S&S. This time, though, I decided to try it on audiobook. It's narrated by Donada Peters (whom I love) and WOW, what a difference! I am really, really enjoying it and am SO glad I gave it a second chance.

So if anyone out there has tried to read a book that they know they should probably love, or at least TRY, maybe switching the format would help! :)

I've heard the PG on audio is nothing compared to dead tree versions, the redundancy goes away and/or is not as noticeable. Haven't tried it yet though.
