All change at work and in the absence of sat-nav a new Ordnance survey map to learn as I find my way round a big new geographical patch that I haven't driven in years
I've spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get my internal compass set in the right direction out in the back of beyond and have only found myself on the road up to Bude by mistake once, which isn't bad and I still don't know how it happened.
But with all that driving you can probably see one big advantage for someone like me, I can listen.
If I'm not listening to the radio then I can have audio books on.So far I've caught the gist of several afternoon plays, somehow managed to hear all of the afternoon Women at War short stories and am completely up to date with The Archers.
I've never really had the time or the inclination for audio books but all that will change because here's a grand opportunity for me to start exploring them.
Currently,and thanks to Orion, I have Thrush Green by Miss Read on the go and have passed a few very entertaining journeys in the company of Mrs Curdle.
I'm not really sure which books work well in audio and which don't so here's where I'm hoping dgr visitors may be able to help out.
Any audio books that seem even better than reading the original?
Please don't anyone suggest The Time Traveller's Wife because I tried that on my iPod Shuffle which kept doing what it said on the box and shuffling and I got in a dreadful muddle.
Any genre that works particularly well?
Any that work well with stop-start listening?
I'm relying on you all.
