Re "Recorded books a growing segment" (Page D1, Aug. 12): I love reading Allen Pierloni's book reviews and totally agree that audiobooks are a favorite. Not only can I listen to books on long drives, but I have an apron with deep pockets where I put the CD player and listen while working around the house, and 30 minutes on the treadmill goes a lot faster when you're listening to a book.

Sometimes the narrator is the draw. Will Patton is such a wonderful narrator that I've read everything he's done, regardless of author. That has opened me to all kinds of new books. While I still read hardbacks, I can now read twice as much. Thanks, Al.
