Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

Shiloh's post made me remember my own Foreign Literature/Language courses that I took. Reading a book in a foreign language seems daunting at first, especially if you are not all that familiar with it, so reading abridged books is a great idea. You still get the feel for the story and you can stop a...

Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

I do not think I ever read the abridged book but once, and that was fairly recently. I picked up a copy of Pride and Prejudice, so I could read it for Book Bingo, but it seemed rather thin to me. However, I disregarded that, since I clearly told the librarian that I need the full book. When I opened...

Re: Week 2 - Discussion: Do Audio books recreate the Magic of Communal Storytelling?

I agree with Shiloh. The quality and feel of the audio book largely depends on who is narrating it and therefore, just how much storytelling magic they can bring to the listener. I remember that I wanted to get into audio books for Book Club Bingo, so I could multitask, but I could not really bring ...

Re: Week 2 - Discussion: Do Audio books recreate the Magic of Communal Storytelling?

I think I might be in a minority here, but I do not think that they recreate the magic of communal storytelling. At least not for me. When I think back on the day when my mama or grandparents told me and my cousin stories, we always sat next or before the person, with milk or hot chocolate in hand a...
