I have to start by saying that I love Audible.com. I really do. I’ve been a member for years and can blow thru my 24 books a year in no time.
Here’s the thing.
I found Bitten, by Kelley Armstrong (yeah, I’m using Amazon links) and really enjoyed it. Great narrator and great story if you’re in the mood for contemporary supernatural.
When I tried to get book #2, I found they didn’t have it. Grrrr. So I ordered the book from Amazon and figured I could read it and then go on with my listening.
You know that I didn’t take the time to read book #2, right? It’s not rocket science to figure that one out.
I mean, I listen when I’m in the garden and when I’m cooking and, sometimes, when I’m knitting. I can’t read and do those other things simultaneously.
So I got #’s 3, 4, and 5 and started listening. (They changed narrators and she’s a bit annoying but mellows out after #3)
Book #2 came. It’s still sitting on the coffee table. I heard stuff that I would have read but still think that I’ll get to the book.
3 thru 5 are now but a distant memory.
I gleefully trip over to Audible to get book 6. SCREEEEECH!! Hold up! They don’t freaking HAVE IT! But they do have 7 and 8.
Now I really don’t know what to do. Do I order book 6 with the hope that I’ll read 2 and then 6?
I really want to listen to more but how far behind can I get before I’m completely ticked off?
