I've got His Dark Materials loaded on to the mp3 player. I've always pronounced this with the emphasis on "his," but author and narrator Philip Pullman goes with "dark." I'm at the scene where Lyra and Pantalaimon (now I've also got the definitive pronunciation of daemon -- think demon) are listening in as Asriel meets with the directors. Delicious anticipation!
In the meantime, join the Audiobook Community and mingle with other tapeworms. (I am so not a social networking kind of gal, so don't expect to hear from me very often over there.) Back sometime in June.
