So I was thinking about that last post and how to solve the problem of entirely lacking the time to just flop on the sofa to dive into a book for a few hours. My Kindle was absolutely drained of power when I checked it last night. So if you have a Kindle, and have a sense of how long a charge lasts you’ll have an idea how long it’s been since I used it.
I love reading books. I have far too many of them lying around the house. I also have a silly amount on the iPad as well. I’m not too bothered about the digital v paper debate. It’s a book, it works for me.
But I was thinking of resurrecting my Audible account. Perhaps that’s the answer? I could have the book on in the background while I potter. The only problem with that, is I really like to concentrate on a book – build that imaginary world in my mind. If I’m pottering about doing something my mind will probably drift and I’ll end up having to rewind the thing a zillion times. But perhaps I’ll give it a try. I have one of the ‘Master and Commander’ stories on Audible, if I can follow that then the idea may have legs.
I tried to learn French by audio lesson a couple of years ago. Problem was I kept falling asleep when listening to it. Fine, I thought, I’ve heard all about subliminal learning. Then we went to Paris – er, subliminal learning … does not work for me :/
