This is a weekly feature I have decided to start this year. It will include the books I read in the past week and my thoughts on current book trends and topics (including movies/series based on books) and the books I want to read. I also want to talk about what other book bloggers are sharing or their opinion on anything bookish. I just felt like as a book community it will be nice for everyone to gather around once in a while and share what they love so much – books!
One of the things I wish I was good at is listening to Audiobooks. I think it would save me a lot of time and help me multitask and keep up with my book tracking. Yet for the life of me I haven’t been able to complete even one Audiobook. Now I do think a slight ear pain while I listen on the headset that leads to a headache is a contributing factor, more often that not I end up falling asleep or at least half asleep which really frustrates me as I am neither listening nor sleeping!
Another thing is I really loose my attention and end up thinking about something else. I love getting lost in my thoughts and for better or worse Audiobooks help me do just that. These days my mom constantly complains am hardly listening to her and even though I did “hear” her it just passes by me. Like a ghost that glides through you and its pretty much the same with Audiobooks.
I would love to listen to Audiobooks and its something am really looking forward to, I tried my best with Ready Player One but I got too excited to keep pace and began reading. I almost made through a lot more on The Wife Between Us but as the story progressed I couldn’t wait to finish it asap. Sometimes I do try to simultaneously listen to the Audiobook and read the ebook where I do make slight progress but I have never reached the finish mark.
So how do you do it? Are you a fan of Audiobooks? What would you recommend to help listen to one patiently? Which is the book that hooked you? What would you recommend? I would love to hear from you. Please share in the comments!
