How Audio Books Can be “read” in the Most Common Places…

Technology isn’t all bad despite what some people might think.

Who would have ever believed that not only would we cut down on the way we use up our vegetation for making everyday books, but that we would also be able to “listen” to books instead of “reading” them.

Ironic? Not with the introduction of audio books.

With audio books, we now have the unique advantage of doing other things that occupy our hands, but not our minds. We can now do other things like household chores, exercise, etc while still having the book read to us.

More people are embracing the wonders of audio books and are buying their favorite books in the audio version.

If you are considering buying an audio book, listed below are 6 of the great places you can enjoy it:

1–In bed – There are certain days when we just don’t want to do anything but lie down in bed and relax. Or maybe you just want to lie down in the dark until you fall asleep.

This is a great time to listen to an audio book. You don’t have to bother with putting on the lights, holding the book, flipping through the pages or physically reading the book itself.

With an audio book, the entire volume will be read to you while you lye comfortably in bed.

2–In the kitchen while doing household chores such as washing the dishes or cooking. For some people it can be very boring being in the kitchen, especially washing the dishes or other such chores.

This is a great time to enjoy an audio book because your hands are busy but your mind is free.

Instead of feeding your mind with negative thoughts, an audio book would be a wonderful alternative.

3–In the garden while gardening – You can also listen to audio books while gardening. The audio book can make the gardening fun because you would be concentrating on the beauty of the audio book and not on the difficulty of gardening.

4–While exercising such as jogging – Exercising such as jogging leaves your mind open but your hands, legs and even your entire body busy. This is a great time to enjoy an audio book.

Most people perform exercises for many minutes or even hours while their minds do nothing. But listening to an audio book during this time ensures you don’t waste those times that you exercise.

Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone – exercising your body and mind at the same time!

5–On the road commuting – This could either be in your car or a bus or train while going to work. You see, many people lose a great deal of time doing nothing while commuting to and from their jobs.

Why not use that time to listen to an audio book, especially one that develops your mind and/or improves your professional and business skills?

For example, listening to an audio book that improves your skills daily can do a lot of good to your career, instead of listening to a pop song which wouldn’t help you much in the area of skill acquisition.

6–In the air while traveling – You wouldn’t believe it, but there are many people who spend more time in the air than on road. There are professional assignments that involve traveling from one state to the next, or even from one country to another.

If you are in such a situation, consider the enormous benefits you would get listening to audio books, especially those that can improve your professional skills.
