Hi Holly and Maddy! What, if any, music do you like listening to when you're in the process of creating (hats, prose, anything) and does the music change depending on what you're creating?

So now I have to ask: What are your favorites audiobooks and do you have favorite narrators? Do you prefer single narrators or full cast audiobooks or does that not matter?

Hah! Wonderful, I will check those two out. I most memorable Audiobooks I listened to recently were Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy, Junky by William S. Burroughs, and On a Pale Horse by Piers Anthony. They were all very interesting but the exact opposite of light. The Humble Bundle occasionally has audiobook bundles so I would check back with them semi-regularly; these books I just mentioned I purchased from the humble bundle.

If I remember lighter but still interesting audiobooks I'll post them as a reply to you here.

So I just checked my humble bundle purchase history and it seems the audiobooks I'd purchased are either heavy (e.g. The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie), Doctor Who audioplays (I gotta queue them up after I finish catching up with all my podcasts!), or unknown to me (queue them up after the Doctor Who stuff).

I did listen to some audioplays based on your dad's work a while back (Snow, Glass, Apples and Murder Mysteries) and the production values and cast I thought were marvelous.

Oh, and on a whim I checked my local library and found they had plenty of Jeeves and Wooster by P.G. Wodehouse audiobooks to download for free; I loved reading those short stories and they're much lighter than anything I mentioned earlier. So, if I were you I'd check with your local library. There is some DRM, my library uses the Overdrive system.

Of course; this thread is probably perfect to ask everyone for their suggestions. Come on, everybody! Let's hear your favorites.
