Blogger Confession: Where I listen to Audiobooks!
I am always asked how I can listen to 2 to 3 audiobooks a week. On top of the fact that I just love them, I do have several different activities that lend themselves to listening to audiobooks.
When I am at work!
Here is where I think I am probably beyond lucky–I can listen to audiobooks while I am working. I am a server admin (meaning the person behind the machine that is behind the application that the people in front of me support) which means I don’t actually talk to people. My headphones make sure that people are not confused by that and think I am the person they talk too.
When I am crafting!
I am a big crafter (crochet, needlepoint, quilting, and occasionally scrapbooking). Listening to audiobooks is PERFECT for those times because I can concentrate on my project without having to look up (like if I was watching TV).
When I am fixing up the house!
In the last year I have done a TON of home improvement and quite frankly have a long way to go. I listen to audiobooks while painting, cleaning, patching, flooring, ripping wallpaper, and putting together shelves. The only time I don’t is when what I am doing is too loud then I listen to music!
When I am browsing at a story or the library!
I am that person that will put her headphones in while shopping or looking at the library. I like to take my time while at the library and can spend easily an hour just walking up/down the aisles. Over the last year I started doing that with headphones in. Makes browsing even more fun!
When I am walking!
When I happen to go on a walk (instead of doing one of my work out videos) or hit the treadmill I tend to listen to audiobooks (unless I am trying for a super fast time then it is pacing music). It really helps to distract me from the fact that I am working out!
When I am Cooking
I love to cook plus it works well with my eating plan. Listening to audiobooks helps the prep work go by faster!!
When I am Gaming!
I am a gamer. I play (ed) WOW, City Building Games, Diablo 3, and several other PC Games. Listening to audiobooks while playing helps when farming. I do turn off the audiobooks during story parts 🙂
Where do you listen? In the car? When Shopping? When ignoring family? 🙂
