Has anyone recorded their own audiobook?

Hiya, first time chatting on here. My dd(10), and ds(8), read well independantly, but I still read to them nightly because I love doing all the daft voices etc (they seem to like it too!). On long car journeys they enjoy audiobooks, and ds asked me tonight if I could make him some cds for our holiday or could read out loud in the car. I explained that I'd love to read to him..... but would likely puke!! Has anyone recorded their own? Was it tricky? Any top tips?

Yes, but only when dd was very small (maybe 2 or 3). Also for in the car - she liked being read to but much preferred a voice she knew & I get carsick too.

I did it with a tape recorder (this was quite a while back!) - just had the tape running while I read stories to dd.

I should imagine it would be much easier now, my cheapy MP3 player has an internal mike, records reasonably good quality, and you can transfer it to anything then of course.
