Listening to an Audiobook

I've started my 3rd summer reading book today! This time I am trying something new: an audiobook.

I usually like to read an actual book. I like the the feel of the book in my hands. I like to turn the pages. But, I am not adverse to ebooks. I read them on my Nook. It has the look of paper, which I like. 

But audiobooks have been hard for me to get into. I don't know: I think my mind wanders more and I have a harder time concentrating.

Nonetheless, I have to walk. Sometimes I walk upwards of 3 hours a day. That's because I few months ago I came down with gastroparesis. In other words, my stomach doesn't quite work correctly anymore. It takes several hours for me to start digesting after I've eaten something. Walking, however, helps get my digestive system moving.

So I decided to use this time to give audiobooks another try. And I started To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han today, using Hoopla. If you have a public library card, you can download audiobooks (and ebooks, too) using Hoopla or other services from from your public library.  Click here for instructions.

You can also download audiobooks from Sora, which is available from Hersey's ARC. 

There's Axis 360 that also gives you access to ebooks and audiobooks.

If you would like to listen To All the Boys I've Loved Before along with me, you can listen by clicking on the image below.  Let me know what you think!
