Yes to SK reading the first 3 on cassette. I fear to use mine anymore!
I listened to the first book (you can hear big trucks rolling by the radio station where they recorded this if you listen REAL close!) and the second but never did get to the third book. I just can't listen to a book on tape. My mind just starts to wander....

More often than not, I'm opening a book to block out all the yakking around me.

When you have a 40 minute commute to work every day they make the time pass beautifully. I probably have 20 SK books on CD (of course I already have the books and have read them all) and have listened to them all multiple times over the past 10 years or so. I keep expanding my collection. They have been a life saver for me. I think they bring a different kind of richness to the stories by listening to them being read with inflection and feeling instead of in my own head.

There have been times when I have listened to audio books, but I find it hard to concentrate on them when my mind keeps saying 'You should be doing this or that while you are listening to them.' They work great when I'm painting a room though! ;-D

That's why they are perfect for the car, you don't have that feeling when you are trapped in a car and bored out of your mind lol.
