Day 10 of #BookSpine365
So today I want to do something a little different: an ebook. Sitting on my third shelf from the top in a crochet sleeve lays an Amazon Kindle 3G keyboard. Beautiful e-ink. Easy on the eyes. I can do so many neat tricks with it, I even wrote a post a while ago on Google+, although there is probably much more to be added to that list now. If you want to have the battle against e-ink and real, tangible book as your medium-go ahead. I won't waste my time with all that nonsense. I adore all mediums: books, audiobooks, and ebooks. As long as I'm reading (or listening) to a good novel or other genre, I'm in Heaven. The visualization...the smell, the grip of the page. Spine titling poetry. Sneaking in another title on a buckling shelf to tuck somewhere that the book should or shouldn't fit. I love and adore all those things from a book. That's why I will always collect books. The transportation from reality to imagination is what made me a bibliophile. I can be a bibliophile in any medium.
You probably heard of "Whodunnit? Murder in Mystery Manor" by Anthony Zuiker before via the popular TV show. Heck, even the killer gets a twitter account and gets in on the fun. Trust me-listen to the audiobook. It's just as deliciously evil and sadistic with twists and turns like you'd never believe. Narrated by Gildart Jackson, it runs just over 7 & 1/2 hours. Jackson's voice is pleasant and smooth, the pacing is just right with intensity guiding and aligning to the scenes appropriately. Summarized, characters are summoned to a manor under the impression of being winners of a sweepstakes to live like royalty for a week. Think again. A murder occurs. The 10 guests now know they are stuck in a diabolical game where they must solve murder after murder of each other when they occur-and be the last one standing. The twist? The killer stands among them. In the end, there will be a winner, a loser, and the revealed killer. Definitely worth the listen-and at the time of writing of this post, the unabridged version is still free. Giving a free book a try will never do you any harm, especiously one where there's no clichés of "the butler did it."
