So, if you’ve been paying attention, you’d know I recently took a new job.
To accomplish this, I now need to commute each week to a new state, going back to visit the family on the weekends. It’s about a 5 hour drive. Pretty darn boring.
So I had this idea, why not try an audio book? So I went to the library before I headed to the job destination this past Sunday and grabbed a book by Terry Goodkind (The Law of Nines). One of my favorite authors, and a book I haven’t had a chance to read yet.
You know what? It’s not bad. I thought I wouldn’t like being read to, or it would be distracting, but it’s not. I can focus on the road and it’s like someone in the car is telling me a story.
The unfortunate side of this? The story, as read, is something like 12 hours, so I’m a little less than half-way through, and I don’t have the book to keep going. So I either ‘listen-read’ going back and forth to work each day, or I wait until I head back home on Friday. Either way, it’s way better than I was expecting.
I like audio books. Imagine that!
