Speaking of The Series of Unfortunate Events, I just listened to a great interview with Daniel Handler, the, er, official representative of Lemony Snicket. The interview is free to download from Audible.com. It’s a little old — apparently it took place last year before the release of the movie — but it’s still interesting, and Handler displays his characteristic wit. (When the interviewer told him her nephew was devouring the books, he replied that the boy should be reading them, not eating them.)
I love Audible.com. Once a week, I make a 2-hour round trip drive, and the audio books I download from Audible.com keep me sane. Also, my son and I love to listen to audio books together when we are driving. I have a subscription which allows me to download two audio books per month and gives me a discount on any additional ones. Since I only listen to unabridged audio books, (I can’t stand abridged books in any form!) which tend to be expensive if purchased separately, downloading one free book each month usually pays for the subscription. The second book is a bonus.
