Remember the last time I was talking about how I never have time to read? I think I finally found a solution. I’m not sure if it will entirely replace reading in my life, but at least it’s filling in the gap for now.
I discovered Audible and listening to books rather than reading them. Do you realize how many hours we waste just driving? My drive is a half hour each way to work and sometimes longer depending on traffic. Now I can fill that time with words and stories rather than getting pissed off at idiotic drivers. I also realized it was something to do while I crochet rather than trying to “watch” television. I’m not so good that I can’t watch my hands, so I realized I was missing a lot while I was busy crocheting.
It is rather expensive, but if it’s something I will use, I will consider it worth it. Besides, the first book is free, so why not give it a try?
The first book I downloaded was Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. I’m enjoying King’s writing style (as usual) and the chilling look into the killer’s mind. I’m not very far into it, but it is exciting and intense and I can’t wait to get into my car every morning so I can listen to it.
Since I don’t have page numbers to go by, I will let you know that this quote comes from the tale end of Chapter 14. I hope you enjoy!
“What he knows now is that guilt isn’t the only reason people commit suicide. Sometimes you can just get bored with afternoon TV.”
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat.
