Hear! Hear! Audio Books! by Christine Bush

 I’ve been an avid reader for all of my life.  In the early days, I’d always have at least one book stashed in my pocketbook in case “down time” appeared in my day.

On my bed stand, I had the often discussed “to be read” pile of stories by my favorite authors.  At times, I might even be reading more than one at a time.

Then the Kindle appeared on the scene, and in a flash, it was filled with a zillion books, easy to carry around and ready for any occasion.

I come right down the middle in the “kindle vs paper book” discussion.  I’ve decided it’s an “and”.  I like them both.

Reading, reading reading!

But then the pandemic hit, the library temporarily closed, and the zoom phenomena began. For a long time, my life was on screen.  I was writing on line, teaching zoom classes on line, reading those zillion books loaded on the Kindle. I was holding meetings of many types on line, reading college students’ electronically submitted assignments  and papers on line, communicating with friends and family in little zoom boxes…

After a while, it was clear that my eyes were feeling the strain.

Enter Audible books.

It was such a thrill to be able to download some of my favorite author’s stories.  I could sit back, close my eyes, and LISTEN.  And rest my  tired eyes.  What a joy!

So then, I had to learn how to bring my own stories to the audio world.  What an experience! Auditioning readers, hearing my work read out loud, I faced the learning curve. Exciting!

Three novellas are available so far..
