Audio books?

Lily PillyLily Pilly Central southern Scotland Posts: 3,846
As I am still struggling to read anything, except on the I pad (I can enlarge the print on this)I do not own a kindle 
I really miss reading and find I am exhausted after a very short time attempting a book I thought about audio books.  I have had a look online  and am bamboozled!
 An anyone recommend anything?!
thanks

    Hi @Lily Pilly , sorry about your problems . A friend of mine who also has eye sight problems loves her audiobooks. What sort of books are you into, murder mystery, romance, 50 shades.... ;)

    @Lily Pilly The latest one from JK Rowling was Fantastic Beasts: the crimes of Grindleward as far as l can tell. There's one she wrote as Robert Galbraith called Lethal White.
    Joanna Trollope's last one was An unsuitable match .
    Have a look here

    Sounds good LP.   We bought the entire Harry Potter set on CD (Stephen Fry) when Possum was at the age when she asked "Are we nearly there?" every 5 minutes on our 1100+km trips to Italy for skiing or the beach.   Then it became "Can we finish the chapter?".

    Enjoy your books.  I hope your hols do the trick for you.

    We will soon be at this stage for our little people. Still nursery rhythms!

    Depending on what you like, I find YouTube perfect for me, I’ve been through all Dickens, Jane Austin, Wilkie Collins, Morse, Wexford, Brontes, and now Lord Peter Wimsey,  I listened to many more, can’t think off hand,  I have to pick and choose those as I don’t like the Librivox editions,  usually American readers and each chapter by a different person.
