I've been reading by listening to audiobooks for a very long time.
As in . . . a really long time. Like back when they weren't called audiobooks yet. Just "books-on-tape." I used to get cassette-versions (and later the CD-versions) of books at the library, and pop them into my Sony WalkMan (and later my DiscMan) and listen while I took the dog on walks. I kind of thought it was magical. Reading AND . . . doing something else.
Times have changed. Now, I just download books on my iPod, clip it to my shirt (or stick it in my pocket), and I'm good to go! Reading AND . . . indeed. (So much easier with my tiny Nano. As compared to my WalkMan!)
This week, Carole wonders what we DO while we listen to audiobooks.
I read AND . . .
- Hand stitch
- Work out
- [Insert any mundane household chore here]
- Pull weeds
- Walk the dogs
- "Beautify" (the hair; the face; etc.)
- Draw or paint
- Drive (only plugged into the auxiliary channel; never with headphones)
How about YOU? What do you do while you listen to audiobooks?
(You know what I NEVER do, though? I never, ever read AND . . . ride my bike. Because it is absolutely not safe to use headphones while you're pedaling.)
