Audiobook / Book Club

Interesting post on CSA Word‘s Facebook wall:

Csa Word – the Good Ship Book Group in Kilburn will be split down the middle for a new experiment on 16th March 2010…half will be reading the paperback of Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London and half will be listening to the unabridged audiobook version (6CDs / 7.5Hrs / Unabridged) read by Jeremy Northam. Watch this space for feedback and general thoughts reading vs listening!

Worth friending this UK audiobook publisher to track this audiobooks & book clubs experiment!
