When Do I Listen to Audio Books?


Welcome to day four of Audio Book Week! For our discussion question, Jen wonders where exactly do we listen to our audios? In short, for me that would be everywhere. But I understand that I get extra points if I use pictures, so pictures you are going to get!

















In the car.















While cooking.















While doing yard work.















While cleaning the house, and all other forms of domestic torture, such as ironing, laundry and picking up after my children.












While working out, including my elliptical machine and walking outside.















While cleaning the pool, taking care not to fall in of course.



So where do you enjoy listening to audios?

My kids are too young for me to be listening (either earphones or stereo) around the house. I'm looking forward to the day that changes.

For now, I listen in the car on my way to and from the airport (1 hr each way) and when I ride the train in Chicago to the apt I have there.

Gee, no wonder it takes me forever to listen to entire book!

Too cute! I love that you included the toilet!

But don't you ever listen while lounging in your chair at the end of a day? I was waiting for that photo of the wine glass ;0)

This is great! You're making me want to give audio books another go.

TMI with the picture of the toilet bowl - not that it didn't make me laugh out loud at work... Shame on you! LOL!

Definitely a funny post--oh, but you work too hard. I listen when I'm on my commute, however whenever I actually have to pay attention to my driving, I lose track of what's going on in the story. I also listen while jogging, either outdoors or on the treadmill.

It's funny because while I listen to audiobooks while doing my chores, I don't think I ever listen while cooking. Now, I wonder why that is.

I enjoy the illustrations. :)

ds said...

Ha ha! Love the form of household "torture" you chose to illustrate. Great post, Sandy!

Susan said...

Wow! Do you ever come up for air? LOL

I guess I need to start listening when I'm performing the housecleaning excorcisms! They are torturous and I usually remedy that by making umpteen trips to the pantry! Reading by ear is less calorific!

Kathleen said...

That's the upside to listening to audiobooks for sure. You can listen to them just about anywhere, well maybe not church. Hopefully one of these days I will train my brain to listen instead of read the words on the page. I would certainly read a ton more books this way.

Cool way to take pictures. I never thought of doing it that way! Yesterday my house got really cleaned as I just kept listening!

Jenners said...

I always wondered about how you managed to listen to so many audios!

Serena said...

no wonder you get through so many audio books!
