Default Late comer . . .

I suppose I am the last person, on earth, to discover library audiobooks when traveling. haha I had some suspense novels on my driving trip to Florida and back. Wow, did fly by. I'm glad I had cruise control on when the extremely suspenseful parts happened.

Do you like audiobooks?

Yes they are great for travel or when you are very tired! I use them sometimes!

Oh my gosh, I love audiobooks! At my previous job I had a 25-40 minute commute depending on traffic, so I listened to a lot of books while I drove. I didn't even mind when traffic was stop-and-go, because I was focused on the story instead of being frustrated about the traffic. I often would listen to books while I was outdoors weeding my garden or doing some other such mindless chore. Now that I live a mile from my work and live in an apartment, I don't listen to books anymore, but would use them for a road trip in a heartbeat!

I find it distracting to try and listen to a book while I'm driving.

I need to stop and analyze what I'm read, to found hints, symbolic, or parallels with other stories or my life. I found it difficult to stop a audiobook on a right moment, and many confuses with turn back to the right place. I remember we had lot of fun in my childhood with radio theater, so I expected this to be similar. But I'm afraid my mind is too overwhelmed in present days.

I love audiobooks. I will borrow CDs from the library and sync them with my iPod. Or I will borrow them from the library itself. And I use Hoopla.com.
Even better, they are all free!

I've always used Overdrive and had the free ebooks, using my library, but it never dawned on me to use the audiobooks, when driving. I like that when I turn the car off (or hit stop when using at home) it automatically stops and then restarts in same place when I resume. It's like going to library day, when in school, and having the librarian read to me. haha Some of us (uhhh ME) are just slow learners.

AZK, yes, I love using it when I'm working in the yard now, also. I weeded my whole 8x8 garden, Friday, and it went by so fast. I'm not sure what my one extremely "nosey nellie" neighbor thought when I'd be smiling, commenting or snarling (depending on what section of book I was in). I love keeping her guessing anyways. Kind of my revenge for her being such a grouch. haha
