Booking Through Thursday #2

Booking Through Thursday Meme hosted here.
Today's question are...
1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?

I don't have any children, and don't really remember being read aloud to. I do however remember reading to my younger brother all the time. I would read from our book of Aesop's Fables, or English Fairy Tales. I would read a couple stories and then have him read one. It helped him a lot, but he doesn't really read anymore.

I don't know if it has any impact on audiobooks for me. I can only listen in the car, because otherwise I get too distracted. I also have to have a good reader, if the reader isn't just right, it's a deal-breaker.

I do a program for teens at the library where they can come in their pajamas and I read a few picture books to them and maybe some chapters from new YA. I also do a book talk then. I also make my boyfriend read new picture books to me every once in a while, because it is nice being read to and not doing all the reading yourself!

  1. I have my issues with audiobooks. I try so hard to listen to them, but I have so many issues maintaining focus. And if the reader isn't great, then I can't do it. I give up right away. I think I've gotten through four audiobooks in my life. I'm listening to one right now though and this one's a keeper. Like you, I listen to them on my way to work because it's the only time I can focus on it and not be distracted by things at home.
