Being an avid reader, I always try to think of ways to read more books. As a nurse my time is limited and I often work different hours which makes it hard to read whenever I want. Coming home around 1 p.m. and turning on the light so I can read for a while sounds like a good idea, but then I wake my man who has to work ‘normal’ hours. Definitely not an option.
“So what about Audiobooks?”
Over the years I read a lot about Audiobooks. They sound like the perfect way to still ‘read’ wherever you are and whenever you can. I loved the idea of Audiobooks since.. well forever. But somehow I never seemed to get to the point to buy them. They were too expensive.. they didn’t have the English ones I wanted.. I didn’t have time to listen to them. The list of reasons why I didn’t get into Audiobooks is long. But especially lately I kept hearing about these awesome Audiobooks and when I saw an advertisement about Audible I decided to give it a try. So since a month now I have Audible and I’m able to get Audiobooks for a very reasonable price.
“But now what? When do you listen to them?”
Unfortunately I still haven’t listened to a lot of Audiobooks. I just don’t know when or where I should listen to them. When I’m at home I prefer to sit on the couch and ‘read’ a book.
But last week I finally bought two Audiobooks I’m really looking forward to! And since I’m working the night shift this week I’ve been listening to one of the books on the drive to work. So far I’m really enjoying it, but I still wonder about when and where I can listen to it. Especially since I’m not working the night shift forever and I wonder about what to do when life gets back to normal. (Trust me, no matter how many night shifts you work.. you always feel a little weird.)
So help me out..
