1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?
I loved being read to, until I figured out that if I read it on my own…I could read faster. Occasionally, I don’t mind being read to, if the person reading is a good reader–pauses in the right places, understands the vocabulary, etc.
Audiobooks are different for me, because the folks reading are generally good readers and sometimes with delightful accents that enhance the story. I read aloud sometimes when I am testing out a character’s voice for a story I’m working on, or if I’m babysitting. ~_^
Sadly, I don’t have anyone reading to me on a regular basis–lol–so I can’t comment on the last part. Fun question!
