In Which I Proclaim my Geeky Love For Audio Books

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

I finally signed up for an Audible account through the TWIT promotion—in part because I’ve just started taking part in a book club and I’m opting to listen to the books rather than read the hard copies (Is that cheating?). It also didn’t hurt that Seth Godin released a free version of his new book, Tribes, through Audible last week.

It’s nice to be able to combine "reading" with the some of the other things I’m doing anyway—working out, walking to the grocery store or walking to work.

For students, there’s an even cheaper option out there for audio books—the library. I still use the library to this day, and it boggles my mind that more people don’t take advantage of it.

Are any of you doing this already? If not, why not?
