I love these episodes!

I always love to hear what others are reading/listening to. This episode was the books that got us hooked on audiobooks. Mine was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I wanted to read this book so bad but just couldn't get into it. So I thought, i wonder how it would be on audio? I signed up for Audible, got my two free books (it was 2 back then) and have been listening ever since. That was 8-07-12. My 7th anniversary with Audible was yesterday! I love Audible and audiobooks. They've got me through some difficult times.

Something Different

Story: 2-Stars
************

If you have followed the show from the beginning, you will notice that a large majority of the titles discussed have been covered previously. New perspectives on prior titles, in the absence of 'new news', would have been sufficient, though even the background anecdotes from the individual hosts are, in some instances, the same. If this episode is the first you have heard in the series, then this will not be an issue.

Performance: 4-Stars
*******************

Technically, this is a substantial departure from previous episodes. The show is an audio recording of a Facebook Live broadcast in front of a live audience of Audible employees. While there are small details specific to the video format (I can't see you waving at the camera) that break the immersion possible in the usual 'made for audio' production, for the most part it just works. The live Q&A between the editors and Facebook Live viewers was a particularly nice addition.
