I have been dying to join a book club and one online is just up my alley. The setting and time in history are really great for me and I love a good mystery. I can't wait to get your book and start listening to it. I am an audio book person because I tend to fall asleep when I am reading a book and it takes me forever to finish. I'm looking forward to getting online with you...and also reading the first two of your books.

reading your intro I must say for me it is the other way round: Lately I fall asleep when I try to listen to audio books. I simply had to give it up and I ended up buying print instead.
It wasn't allways so and I wonder what changed in my brain ;-)

But actually, audiobooks are tough if you're at home. You can't, like, do chores and listen, because you're moving around too much.
Sometimes audiobooks can open a new perspective on a story--they let you hear an accent that you might not hear in your head, or point up a particular saying that a character might repeat. These are things you might not notice if you were reading, but which stand out when the story is read aloud by a skilled performer.
