Since June Is Audiobook Month – and you know that’s a BIG deal in my world – I couldn’t let it pass without a little celebration! So for the month of June, Saturday’s Fun Question Posts have been taken over by audiobook related themes. And I’ll be giving away ONE AUDIBLE AUDIOBOOK of your choice at the end of the month (see rafflecopter below to enter). This is open in the US & Canada only (since I don’t think you can get Audible books International).
Anyway, join me every Saturday as I ask a Fun Question (about audiobooks) that’s been on my mind. I’ll give you my take, but I really hope you’ll jump in with your answers too, since I’m really curious to know what my fellow readers and bloggers think! So today’s question is…
When do you listen?
When I first started listening to audiobooks I was really uninventive about when I’d listen. I pretty much only listened to audiobooks when I worked out. And since I’m not particularly fit that was about 30 minutes a day, tops. It took me forever to get through an audiobook and I had no idea all the opportunities to listen that I was missing! Now, any time that I can possibly listen to an audiobook (and couldn’t be reading a physical book) I’m listening to one.
In my typical day I get in several short bursts of listening totaling between 2 and 3 hours of listening. Now I work from home, so my routine is very different from a lot of people’s – I know that if I had a daily commute I would be listening to an audiobook during that time too! And some people have jobs that are really conducive to listening – I’m working on a dissertation, so that’s not, unfortunately. What I love about audiobooks is that you can listen to them when your doing so many things. I listen when I walk the dog (4 to 5 times day), when I go for a walk/jog, when I’m driving, cleaning, taking a shower, getting dressed for the day and cooking.
I obviously love audiobooks and now I’m giving you a chance to win one to try yourself! This giveaway will be running all month and you’ll have opportunities to earn extra entries with each Saturday Fun Question Post.
