No. The statement about my excessive use of parentheses was merely a bit of self-deprecation to end my intro. (I really like parentheses (I mean -- just look at how many I used in the rest of that first post! (I also have no problem putting parentheticals in my parentheticals.)).)

Both! The two above were from a giant box of children/young adult books I just received. All of those are vocalised. I read a lot of news, which is unvocalised, and was reading Harry Potter which was also unvocalised. How about you?
