How did you get used to listening to audiobooks? I’ve tried several times and I can’t make it, although, on the other hand, I read tons of “traditional” books as well as ebooks (Kindle is still the greatest invention of the humankind ;)).
I love this post series, btw. I always find something interesting in your propositions – so thanks for sharing them!
Thanks, Margaret! I have fun writing these. As for Audiobooks: what was key for me was figuring out what I like to listen to. For me, it tends to be rereads: Books I’ve read before and loved and want to revisit.
