I’m a complete audiobook addict. Long commutes are the perfect time to listen to books, and whether I’m stuck in traffic, taking along walk, or working out at the gym, I’m probably listening to a book. It’s a great way to read more, and so many narrators have soothing voices that will transport you into the world of the novel. Plus, if you have a difficult time getting into classics or denser books, audiobooks can be an excellent entry point.
However, as amazing as it is to listen to audiobooks, they have their drawbacks. If you’re listening to them for hours a day, you can burn through books pretty quickly. Unlike cheap paperbacks or free Kindle classics, audiobooks can be pricy, and you don’t get the thrill of putting them on your beautiful bookshelf at the end of your read. For the audiobook addict, it may be difficult to justify shopping sprees. Also, if you’re a speed reader, you may find that listening to books takes much longer than flipping the pages of your own accord.
Luckily, there are plenty of hacks that can help you make the most of your audiobook experience. Here are some ways you can enhance your time listening to books on books.
