Himself used to listen to books on tape/disc when he would drive to and from work. I never liked a book on tape for a reason similar to why you don't like dissecting author's meaning. The person reading the story, even if it is the author themselves, never sounds like I hear the voices in my head. Yup, I hear voices in my head! But ONLY when I'm reading books. For now...

There is a LOLCat pic of a cat sitting like that titled simply "Loafing" and another with a cat in a loaf pan titled "Learning to Loaf".
