This is going to sound crazy, but I never thought of listening to the Little House books. One of my very favorite childhood series.

Another friend recommended The Willoughbys audio, too! It's going on my list...

Huh, I had no idea the Little House books were on audio. And read by Cherry Jones from 24. Interesting!

I never thought of listening to the Little House books either, but what a great idea since I've been wanting to reread them!

I listened to The Book Thief and the reader was awesome. Really made the characters come alive.

I also listened to Life as we knew it. I liked the reader but the character Miranda needed to be slapped a couple of times.
