Good morning! I’ve had a late start today due to Bloggiesta tasks. Don’t you love that challenge and how it offers an opportunity to tweak, polish, and improve our blogs?
But this post is our A Bit of Me (Me) meme hosted by There’s A Book. Our opportunity to share bits and pieces of our lives outside the blogosphere.
Here’s Today’s Question:
This Weeks Question: Do you listen to audio books? Why or why not? If yes, do you have a favorite?
There is an easy answer for me on this one. Not a fan of audio books! Okay, that sounded harsh, but there’s a reason. In order to fully concentrate on the content of a book, I need to visualize it. I’m a “visual learner,” you see. If I listen to something, I don’t fully attend to it; other distractions seemingly zero in and take me away.
However, if I’m in a car, without any passengers, and on a boring road that doesn’t require my full attention (Hwy. 99 to LA), an audio book might work for me. I know that I’ve put in audios for my granddaughter (okay, I know I said no passengers, but the book was for her!), and I’ve actually “listened and comprehended.”
A fascinating journey would not be the place for audio books—in my opinion.
I guess that just about covers my reactions to audio books. However, I did receive James Patterson’s Private in audio book format, and I will listen to it at some point. On one of those boring trips.
What about you? Are you one of the fortunate ones who can enjoy audio books? Come on over and tell!
