The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
If you are listening to an audiobook, do you follow along with the print version?

I talked about how difficult audio books are for me many times on here, but doing both audio and print actually does work for me. There a few a few cons to this though.
- Trying to get audio speed to match up with reading speed in a way that it doesn’t sound ridiculous.
- Cost, if I have to buy either or both versions!!!!!!!
- Availability of no cost options like the library.
I’ve actually recently put a few audio versions on hold at the library for books I already have. I hope to start soon (some in October) a Backlog Book Review post, weekly, and it would be cool to talk about the audio and print versions but that’ll totally depend on availability.
The only benefit I see to doing both audio and print is being able to talk about both versions, otherwise it seems impractical for many reasons.
