What are some audiobooks that work extremely well in the format? Any that are narrated especially magically?

It's time for Christmas knitting, which means no more reading for probably the rest of the year. I usually just watch tv shows while I'm knitting, but that gets a little mind numbing. I thought this year I'd try out some audiobooks, instead.
My only experience with audiobooks was listening to Wolf Hall and I absolutely loved it--the narrator did a great job with the voices of the different characters and I loved that he included singing. What are some other books that really benefit from being read aloud? I think I'd really enjoy hearing authors narrate their own work. I'm a pretty omnivorous reader, so pretty much all suggestions are welcome.
And, maybe this is a silly question, but how do I get them? I'd rather pay for the individual books than do a subscription service.
