    Finished One Yesterday While Doing Laundry!

    It is so relaxing to do laundry while I'm listening to someone read to me!  I finished Meridith Baxter's book "Untied" yesterday.  I prefer the audiobooks as read by their authors and unabridged.  However, I just began Paul Shaffer's book and don't know if I can listen to his...

    Happy Commuting

    Audiobooks have made me a much more content commuter. About a year ago, I started listening to audiobooks on my way to and from work. I don't do it every day anymore because I realized that I was missing my normal time for internal reflection and thinking through things. But, I...

    I Like Them

    I started listening to them on my daily commute to and from work. I have to take public transit, and all the different *tunes* piping out of all the different headphones on the bus was driving me crazy. I found I couldn't read, because I couldn't focus while all the noise...

    Series Fanatic

    Audiobooks are my favorite way to "read" a book. Don't get me wrong, I like flipping the pages still, but audiobooks can be a great way to hear a story while multi-tasking. I love to pop in my earbuds and listen while I clean the house or do chores. Series are my favorite. I...

    They Work!

    An audio book is so much easier to get through than text. It can wash over me, instead of making me swim. and I can 'read' a lot longer if i'm not using my eyes to do it. I even seem to remember audio books I've read better than traditional ones. I'm a writer myself, and i love...

    French Classics In Audiobook Made Me Like Housework

    Being an intellectual, I have always found it difficult to do monotonous repetitive housework, even just making an easy weeknight dinner, cleaning up after eating, and making lunch and coffee for the next morning. Music is not enough because I am still "thinking". A couple years...

    Nicholas Sparks

    If not for audio books I never would have discovered Nicholas Sparks and he is now one of my favorite writers.  Audiobooks are a great way to pass along the time on a plane or a long trip.

    I Have a Long Commute

    I love to listen to music in the car, but when I know I will have a longer trip than usual, I'll listen to audiobooks I get from the library.  I only get them if they are unabridged, since I don't want to miss a single thing.

    2000 Miles In Stories

    Just recently I drove 1000 miles to a high school reunion. I did the drive to in one sitting and split it up on the way back. I went through three books on CD from booksfree.com--they are not free by the way, but the books made it so incredible bearable and kept me awake. I...

    It takes a little while to get used to the idea

    that listening to audiobooks really is a form of reading. You don't get the full benefit that a book gives of building vocabulary and seeing words spelled out in a text. You don't learn as much from audiobooks but the experience is massively entertaining. Its like the old...
