Confessions of a Bookworm #7

Confessions of a Bookworm #2

Confessions of a Bookworm is a new meme hosted by Anila at Parajunkee's View.
 
With this new feature, we have the opportunity to get to know each other by making confessions!
 
My Confession:
I'm really scared to try audiobooks. I've always read them, so it seems weird to listen to them. I know that they'd be really convenient for long car rides or while working, but I'm still worried. I'm nervous that it will effect my opinion of the book. I might hate the audiobook, when I could have loved reading it. I won a copy of one of Darynda Jones' audiobooks, but I'm scared to try it.
 
This Weeks Question Is:
What would you do if you were forced to read a genre that you simply cannot like?
 
Well I'm not a fan of contemporary, so I'm not sure what I'd do. Maybe just make up a paranormal or fantasy story to add to it, like the main character is a mermaid and her boyfriend in a werewolf that has a fear of water or something. I guess that would be my coping mechanism!

  1. Audiobooks scare me too. The voices of the people never match the voices that I think the characters should have and it just bothers me so much.

  2. I also don't want to try Audiobooks. When I read (I'm mildly dyslexic, so I read slowly), I give each character a voice in my head. I'd hate it if the reader of the audiobook didn't have a voice to match what I thought the characters sounded like. As for reading a genre I hate, I'd probably try to find things to laugh at and make fun of and then rip it to shreds at every opportunity.

  3. I cannot stand horror and if I was forced to read them, I would probably stop reading. I'm not the biggest fan of audiobooks either, because I feel like I haven't really read it:( Basically because I don't remember much of what I listened to.

  4. I'm iffy about audiobooks. I've only tried a few, but I'm not a fan of listening to someone read me a book. I'm usually worried that I won't like the voice or it will take too long to listen to.
