More Than Just WordsÂ
There are so many mediums that feature more than just words and enhance a story in a multitude of ways. Examples may include graphic novels and comics, audiobooks, or even multimedia novels. On this day, we will be talking about those books and formats that move beyond just the words and use other ways to experience a story. Which books stand out to you in these different formats?
One word – DIGGER.
This is an online graphic novel that won a Hugo Award.
It is the only graphic novel I’ve never read.
A wombat.Â A dead god.Â A very peculiar epic.
Really that’s all you need to know.Â You know you need more wombat literature in your life.Â When was the last time you read a book about a wombat?Â Don’t you think you need to fix that right now?Â Go check out Digger.
Updating because I totally forgot about audio.
I love audiobooks but I have to pick the right ones.Â They have to be fast moving and plot driven. Nothing is worse than listening to someone drone on with endless descriptions of scenery.
I also turn to audio if I want the book to slow down.Â I’ve done this with The Dresden Files books.Â If I read them I do it in a day.Â I want to savor them more so I listen to the audio.Â I think I’m going to have to do this for The Iron Druid series too.Â I’m going through them too quickly.
Best audio ever – READY PLAYER ONE read by Wil Wheaton.
I have actually never read a book with a wombat, so I honestly can say I’m intrigued by Digger. And this is the second post I’ve seen today mention the audio for Ready Player One. I read the book, but now I kinda want to listen to the story narrated by Wil Wheaton. Great post! 😀
I’ve never read a graphic novel or listened to an audio book! I feel especially unequipped after seeing everyone else’s posts today. But I’m definitely going to give Digger a chance!

I agree with Wil’s RPO narration being one of the best ever. I also love Jim Dale with The Night Circus and Harry Potter. I listed Wil in my More than Words audiobook recommendations.
