      What's on your list of books? As someone who has been reading fiction since childhood (my first books were read to me) your experience as a new reader is both fascinating and a little disorienting!

      These all stood out for me in the last few years as being great books and well narrated (performed might be a better word): Sharpe's Tiger by Bernard Cornwell, narrated by Rupert Farley The Stand by Stephen King, narrated by Grover Gardner The …

      I read around 60 books a year (it'll be 70+ this year), mostly fiction, some history, a dash of other things. About half of those are audio books these days. They don't replace reading for me, but supplement it. I can listen to audio at times when …

      Thanks for the welcome! Ignoring topics as well as following them has some appeal, but might just end up moving the problem, rather than solving it. For example, let's say you got fed up with seeing Nikon posts in the Camera Equipment topic, so …
