Random Slice Plus a Thought

11454297503_e27946e4ff_hI listen to audio books on my commute.  This morning I plugged my headphones into my newest Playaway and…it was a narrator with a British accent!  I can’t put into words how excited I was by this discovery.

I love books, but a British accent just adds to the magic of the text.  It just does!

So my thought about this slice of my life:  Libraries should organize their audio books by the accent of the narrator.  Yep.  Life changing.

  1. I’ve listened to two audio books with British/English accents. The first was The War that Saved My Life – brilliant. And right now I’m 3/4 done with The Lakehouse by Kate Morton. So, so good!!

  2. Love this! I have my GPS set to give directions in a British accent when I am driving. Even though it gets annoyed with me when I don’t turn where I am supposed to, it gets annoyed in such a delightfully-accented way! And now I will need to investigate these nicely narrated audiobooks.

    1. That’s the beauty of my plan…I could go straight to British and Australian, you could go to German. Although, I’m not sure how many audio books are read by people with German accents?
