On Audiobooks

I'm not sure what it was that prompted me, but two weeks ago I started listening to audio books. And, all I can say is... wow.

I never really gave audiobooks a chance before, but the past two weeks made me realize how invaluable they can be. With audio books I manage to make better use of my down time. I am now listening to audio books when I am cooking, when I am stretching, when I am cleaning, when I am walking to the grocery store, and everywhere in between.

In those two weeks, I fully listened to Bill Gates's "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster", Feynman's "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!", and now I'm listening to Obama's "A Promised Land" as well as an excellent German audio course that I discovered.

I was never able to read this fast without a significant time commitment. Now, going through a book per week feels nearly effortless. This is very exciting for me.
