On June 25 I blogged about audiobooks, and five days later, coincidentally enough, The New York Times had an unrelated feature on the subject. My thanks to Norman Haase, who called my attention to this letter in the Times:
To the Editor:
Re “Actors Today Don’t Just Read for the Part. Reading IS the Part” (front page, June 30):
I am deeply grateful to those wonderful actors and engineers who get the audiobooks to me. I don’t know how I got any housework done before audiobooks.
I started years ago with tapes from the library on a Sony Walkman; now I mostly do Audible.com downloads on an iPod.
My favorite authors include Agatha Christie, P. G. Wodehouse, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Leo Tolstoy, Mark Haddon, Nick Hornby and Lawrence Block.

Nice company! Thank you, Margaret.
