Book or Book on Tape?
9 Mar 07
Probably books - especially since so many books on tape are the abridged versions. I like to go at my own pace and sometimes feel I miss something if my attention wanders while I'm listening to tape. That said, certain narrators can make a book on tape wonderful. I really enjoyed Stephen Fry's narration of the Harry Potter books and Toni Morrison reading her own works is beautiful. She has such a rich voice that helps carry the story along.

I would much rather read!! I can't stand listening to books on tape. I think that it ruins the enjoyment. Books on tape also are set up in one tone. Everything sounds so boring because they do not change their tone. At least reading the books you can feel the excitement or the terror. You can imagine the feeling much better.
