Musing Monday, sound of silence

This weeks prompt:

Do you listen to audiobooks? Why or why not?

No, I don’t — because I work from home. If I commuted I could see myself doing it — assuming I could find audio versions of books I want to read . . .

  1. I think my commute is just too short to really get into an audiobook.
    and when I have tried them at other times, my mind tend to wander…

    I don’t sit still long enough any other time — I can’t imagine trying to listen to a book while also dashing around the house.

    Seems like some people combine listening to audio books with things like knitting. That would work, I bet.

    Agreed! Plus, I can concentrate on the book more when it’s actually in my hand and I’m reading it for myself!

    @Kalie maybe in a way physically holding a book forces a person to concentrate . . . it’s like tying a string around a finger to help you remember something!

  6. I don’t like audiobooks either, I get distracted too easily! If I was a commuter, I might like them but I’m not, so I’ll stick with paperback copies.

    Your rough cover can be copied off the Pick Up site. This version may be too horror for you but heck I liked it. I’m not buying any stock photos as a base so I have to work with what I find.

      Wow it’s gorgeous but your hunch is right about it being too horror — honestly though what a fantastic job!
