TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from my post Twitter party fried brains. It is a floating feature (depending on your reading style), where you tell us what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be reading in the future from your tbr pile, and why. I am oh so curious why people read what they read. So tell me!
I am listening to THE GOLDEN COMPASS (Northern Lights) by Philip Pullman, via a library audiobook. We saw the movie at the theater and I did not know it was based on a book series until seeing the credits. I know, I know, please don't sigh so loudly. I borrowed the book from the library right after seeing the movie, but those were busier days when library books most times went back to the library unfinished. My sister brought me the audiobook after her last library trip because we had been talking about the new television series the BBC is doing. I thought I had read only about ten percent of the book, but I had read about 30 percent. I am finally at a place past what I remember.
It is a full cast narration and I am loving it. I bought the trilogy as an ebook bundle for $3.98 last year, but hadn't gotten around to reading them. I think I will have my sister get the other two as audiobooks for me, also.
Yes, I have this in hardcover in all its pulchritude and eccentricity, but I am just not in the mood for reading a physical book. At this point I don't want to start something new anyway because the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon starts Thursday, and I am going to be jamming on holiday books for a week.
