I have only actually "read" one of the Thursday books - mostly I listen to them. I have gotten them from Audible.com. Therese somebody reads most of them, but there is a different lady reading Something Rotten, she's almost as good.
I feel like I am missing a few of the jokes since I can't see the words since Jasper puts so much into his words, but I enjoy them very much and have listened to them all several times.
I'm really looking forward to "One of our Thursdays is Missing".
If you are in or near a bigger city, you should try the library. Ours has a whole collections of books on tape. If they don't have the Thursday books, maybe you could put them on a wish list?
Welcome to the group! A word to the wise: be careful of the pies. Lately they've been putting out pizzas with anchovies on them! (Pizza pies)
You are hereby invited. I will send dates in the near future. Surprisingly the anchovies melt, giving a wonderful, salty, non-fishy taste. With a little fresh mint, it makes a refreshing change from rosemary and garlic.
Thought you might be interested is this - taken from the FForde Fiesta 2010 page somewhere on this sight:
We raised over a thousand pounds for the RNIB, which we intend to use for a book to be added to their Talking Books library. It will be recorded in its entirety by one of their professional narrators and have the 'Contributors to the Fforde Ffiesta ' recorded at the start of the book for everyone to hear. So a big hoorah for that.
@ senacherib - laughing at "reading gravel"!! never heard it put quite that way...
and thanks, Skids - I'll have to take your word for the anchovies. They only way I'll ever know if that is true is if someone has used them and not told me. <shudder> they just have a really bad reputation, and I've never liked fish.
