Last week we had our first SMS Guys Read meeting of 2010. During that meeting we talked a bit about the books we have been reading. The following video is my discussion about the books I have read so far this year and the books I am currently reading.
In the video we introduce a reading debate that we have had before…does listening to audio books count as reading? Hit that comment button and let us know your feelings about audio books.
Just on a side note, I just noticed that our local library system is now offering audio book downloads, suitable for PC, iPod and other MP3 players. Does that add a wrinkle to our debate?
PS. I am nearly done (11 pages) with Arthur C. Clarke's 2010. I have been pushing hard for the last day as it is due today and someone else has had the grand plan to read 2010 this year and so I can't renew it. I have really enjoyed thinking about how a book published in 1982 had foreseen the future. If you want an interesting Sci-Fi ride that is strangely current, check our 2010.
