Thanks to our library's app, I can download and listen to audio books on my phone, which is the first thing that's made me really happy about upgrading to a "smartphone." What makes this setup even better is that I can listen to kid's books without anyone knowing.
Yep, I'm 45 and I listen to children's books.
At first it was just the ones that I thought were "classics" but that I had missed: Pinnochio, Anne of Green Gables, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Then I moved on to the Percy Jackson series that one of our nephews was really into. Then on to the sequel series. Now it's anything I can find.
As far as I'm concerned, kids get better stories than adults do. No horrific violence. No heaving breasts. No mid-30s-woman-putting-her-life-back-together-after-divorce-and-inevitably-involving-a-circle-of-girlfriends-(one-of-whom-will-get-cancer). No heroine standing in front of the mirror and describing her appearance. No misery-memoirs (fabricated or otherwise). No look-how-my-southern-family-messed-up-my-life retrospectives. Just originality and story.
I may be old enough for reading glasses (sigh), but my literary TASTE certainly isn't.
