I was working three jobs at the time and panicked a little. Now, I’m a fast reader, but this just wasn’t within my reach.
So what did I do? I signed up for Audible, downloaded all the books to my Ipod and listened to them while I was at work. Double duty, oh yeah!
It was completely awesome!! I was hooked and I started downloading other books as well as school books. I could do my homework (listen to my books) while I was working, doing laundry, fixing dinner, and driving.
Perfect. It seriously saved my bacon and I’ve been doing it ever since!
But I still miss having the actual book and feeling the pages between my fingers, jotting notes in the margins and adding them to the collection on my bookshelf.
When life settles down and I actually have time to read for myself again, then I’ll be back. I know Barnes and Noble must be missing one of their ever loyal customers!
In Cold Blood (had to read this for an english class- didn’t much care for it)
The Hunger Games (Currently have Andy hooked on this one too- I sent the audio file with him on his business trip this week)
World Without End (Andy and I are reading Pillars of The Earth right now- I’ve read it before but thought he would like it)
…just to name a few
Okay- back to studying!
