February Books 17- 18): Two Sarah Jane Smith audiobooks

17) The Glittering Storm, by Shaun Lyon
18) The Thirteenth Stone, by Justin Richards

These two audiobooks are both based on the recent TV Sarah Jane Adventures, and are read by Elizabeth Sladen. I have a particular concept of what I rate as a book for the bookblog and what I don't. I'm counting these two because they are described as "audiobooks" and, crucially, feature only one reader doing the text. I listed the audio autobiographies of Tom Baker and Nicholas Courtney on last year's bookblog on the same basis. The Big Finish Companion Chronicles, by contrast, have two actors each, so I reckon that makes them plays rather than books.

Yet all the Big Finish plays are listed separately on LibraryThing, so I've posted all my reviews of them there, even though they are not tagged as bookblog entries here. An argument could be made that if it has an ISBN number, it's a book, or at least a review of it is fair game for one's bookblogging. Another argument can be made that it's my blog and doesn't have to satisfy anyone except me. I expect I will come back to this fascinating topic some time.
