Monday: Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles? New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself and your general listening experience.
I started to listen to audiobooks about two and half years ago when I realized that they'd help me get in some reading time during my 45 minute commute to and from work (1.5 hours a day, at least). It was tough at first because I learned that I needed to train my brain to listen. I often zoned out and would drive the entire leg of my trip and realize I had no idea what was happening in my book.
Last year when I was on maternity leave without a commute I realized how much I missed listening to audiobooks. When I went back to work my listening increased exponentially and now I'm never without a book on my phone to listen to. In fact, I'm to the point of listening more than I'm reading! I'm currently listening to The Stand by Stephen King and re-listening Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
While I've trained my brain to listen better, I still haven't been great about actually reviewing the books I listen to. But two of my recent favorites:
Bossypants by Tina Fey and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
What are you listening experiences?
