Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Should be Reading
This week’s musing asks…
Do you listen to audiobooks? Why, or why not?Taylor's Answer:
My answer to this question is a big, fat YES. I mostly listen to audiobooks when I'm driving in the car. I pretty much always have one playing. I hate to say it, but sometimes I get kind of bored listening to music. With a book, it just whisks me away to some other place and someone else's story! I think a big part of this is that i grew up listening to Adventures in Odyssey in the car with my dad. It was like a ritual. We ALWAYS did it. So, I guess I just grew up listening to stories and getting lost in another place just by listening. They are also a way to help slowly chip away at my massive TBR pile :)

Ok, so I haven't really listened to audio books before until now. I'm currently listening to Shiver on audiobook in my car.....and I really, really like it. I didn't think I would because I love reading so much, but basically I think I'm just like Taylor on this one....it is just easy for us to get lost in a story! OK yeah, if the narrators voices are annoying it is kind of difficult...but I guess you just kind of get used to it if it is a good story to tell.
Still love reading those physical books though.
thanks for reading!
