    For me, I like listening to classic country or classic rock on the radio or, on CD, it is Celtic Woman, Harry Chapin, Kenny G, or Manheim Steamroller.My player in the sewing room is a one CD'er, so I mostly play the radio but the 6player in the LR is mostly used when I am busy and not wanting to change them often and it is easily heard in the sewing room.

    Often there is nothing more than the sounds of the outdoors coming into my room, the music of the birds and rain are my favorites. Then, when the leaf blowers, lawnmowers, chain saws or chippers crank up I switch to the 5 disk player. Almost anything goes, but I can't have it over power the thoughts in my head. When I changed disks last night, I removed ABBA, Yanni, Enya, PDQ Bach, and Classical Jukebox and replaced them with Camana Briana, Schuman, and Clanid. I often listen to internet radio, whatever strikes my fancy. 50's 60's, soft rock, Broadway, light opera, bluegrass, classical, musicals . . . I'd like to get XM, but it doesn't transmit that far in the house. I usually like music which has a beat no faster than my normal heart rhythm, and does not have clashing cords for sewing and cutting. I save that for when I'm getting ruthless with cleaning.

    I have to have something on always. Sometimes it's music (country, Sinatra/standards, classic rock, Christian, blues, oldies) sometimes movies - depends on my mood. Helps me get in my groove.

    OMG, you sound like me! I am in the middle of listening to a series of books, The Shenandoah Series by Emilie Richards:

    1. Wedding Ring
    2. Endless Chain
    3. Lover's Knot
    4. Sister's Choice
    5. Touching Stars

    In that order.

    Very good stories - all related around quilting. The narration is fantabulous. Very southern (and I love a southern accent).

    And I love classical music, Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart. And I love to listen to Luciano Pavoratti.

    Lucky for me our library sells their older cd audio books and their tape audio books, so I have a real collection here. Then when I am done with them I give them to a friend who takes them up north and gives them to the Lions Club for blind people to "see" some good books! I am waiting with bated breath for the next Jennifer Chiaverini book "The Union Quilt" to be delivered to our library. I have a request for it. First one on the list, too! Can't wait til that comes in. It is coming out in March.

    If you want the names of some really good ones PM me and I will be glad to let you know of some. Be sure and read all of Jennifer Chiaverini's books! They are so good! Edie

    Audio books mostly. Lately I have been listening to The Quilt Show while I work. I have had a member ship from the first one so I can go back to the beginning and listen while I work.In the car, that's where I listen to music, then its the oldies channel or the classical one.
