I’m in the Wall Street Journal, confessing how many audiobooks I owned as of last Wednesday. (It’s more now.)
What Alexandra didn’t mention in that final quote was that I listened to that book – all 32 hours and 2 minutes of it – on a Palm Pilot. Yes, that was the first book I ever bought on Audible over 7 years ago and I still remember whole passages as though it were yesterday. It’s a fantastic story with a wonderful narrator and it’s still one of the best books I ever “read” that way. The scene where Mr. Norrell shows up the theoretical magicians with his practical magic is especially memorable and I can still quote parts of how the narrator made it come alive for me.
