I am always in favor of the author reading their book his/herself. It 
just seems more genuine that way.

I agree with you there. I have a collection of Stephen King audio books, and half the joy of listening to them is the way he reads them--who knows better than the writer how it's supposed to sound? (Not to mention King sounds like a horror writer, so it adds to the experience.) I'd really love Dragaera audios, though. Yo Steve--what would we pay you to get you to do a few tapes?
