Anne Hathaway, Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet and Samuel L. Jackson read for Audible.com

Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Susan Sarandon and Samuel L. Jackson are featured  in a new line of audio books from Audible.com.

Here is the list of what these wonderful celebrities tackled:

  1. Anne Hathaway – L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
  2. Samuel L. Jackson – Chester Himes’ A Rage in Harlem.
  3. Susan Sarandon – Carson McCuller’s The Member of the Wedding.
  4. Kate Winslet –  Emile Zola’s Therese Raquin.
I for one am glad to see Samuel L. Jackson lend his voice to an audio book! After so many of his great movie monologues, he can definitely deliver a speech or soliloquy from a novel.

Later this year expect to see more awesome celebrities participating in this. Some of the names that will participate are Dustin Hoffman, Colin Firth, Graham Greene and Kim Basinger. I’ll make sure to mention when their audibles come out!

Are you one of those people who loves to hear others read a book, rather than sitting down and reading one yourself? Leave a comment! Let us know what books you think are better listened to, rather than read.
