1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
It does bring back memories of my childhood when Mom read me Trixie Belden and Little Golden Books.  It also reminds me of my youngest son's nightly ritual - he's in the first grade and they have 15-20 minutes of reading every night.  He loves it, we're working on the Magic Tree House books.

2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
In a way yes, it's like coming home.  I love a well-done audio book - it's a way to pass my commute to work after I drop the kids off at school with a book.  It's also a way to pass time when I'm sewing and sometimes when I'm at the gym, or taking a walk or even when I'm cooking.  That said, I have taken an audio book back to the library when the reader didn't mesh with me (a bad southern accent is one thing to put me off since I'm southern).

3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?
Only when it's my son if it's not an audiobook.


What do you think about audiobooks?  I have an unabridged copy of Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent on CD unopened up for grabs today if you share you answer in the comments.  Enter through Rafflecopter because it's easy for me to draw a winner.  Giveaway open for 3 days so it ends at midnight 10/1.  US/Canada only.
