Right on! I just finished my first audiobook. It was a case of learning while doing, and it may not be perfect as such, but it turned out pretty damn good, and I'm happy with it.
It is an audiobook of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic short story, "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man," in which the protagonist plans to kill himself, but instead experiences a dream which transports him to another world, where he sees how beautiful human life could be, if only humans could overcome their pride, selfishness, and other sinful propensities and learn to live in harmony with each other and with the world around them. This experience makes him want to live again, and to try to recreate the beauty he has seen on Earth. It is a beautiful story.
I think the recording quality got better as time went on, so some of the later "episodes" may sound a little better than the first in particular. Part IV, I thought, came out particularly well--some pretty decent acting as well as recording and editing.
Don't bother listening to this on anything that doesn't pick up bass frequencies well--the best part of my voice is down in the bass frequencies, and the upper register of my voice only sounds nasal and raspy like a bad telephone answering machine message or a tin-can-and-string toy telephone.
