Monday Combo 9/7

with 6 comments

Monday Combo again! starting with Musing Mondays:

What is your preferred method of listening to audio books? Where and when do you listen to them?

– *ahem* I don’t listen to audio books 😉 they’re not my thing. It’s like e-books. I’m not into those either. If I want to read I’d really like having the book in front of me, in my hands, with me smelling those brand new pages 😉

  2. wow, it would take me years to read all the books you got just this week!

    I’ve never listened to an audiobook, so I don’t know if they’re my thing or not, I’ve heard good things. So maybe I’ll give it a try.

  3. I have just recently started getting into audio books becuase I have traveled so much this year, When in the car for 3 + hours I have found I can get more into a good book then music for hours on end…. eventually the music drives me nuts, but the book I can really get into and the time flies. 🙂

  4. Okay, you are going through a mountain of books. How do you fit zombie-killing time into that kind of schedule, anyway?

    • LOL no zombies lately. This month I’m taking some days off from work which is why there’s a mountain of books. It’ll force me to read more than playing zombie killing games 😉
