It’s no secret to those who know me that I have issues with work right now. I’m working on them, but it’s not a very speedy process so far. In the meantime, I’ve found something that makes the day go by MUCH faster.
I really don’t get the chance to read as much as I’d like to. I also have trouble lately (adult onset ADD perhaps?) doing just one thing. Just watching a movie, just reading a book, just talking on the phone – anything that requires me to sit and concentrate on it and it alone – hate it.
So I downloaded a couple audio books last night, and I’ve got them going in my ears as I work. I still get to absorb the books I’ve been wanting to read, and it has the added bonus of drowning out anything else in the immediate vicinity of my cubicle (other than the phone – sometimes I still have to pick that up).
Unfortunately, I can’t afford to drop a small fortune on audible tracks. Other than books on CD from the library that I may or may not be able to rip at home, does anyone have any ideas where to get free or cheap mp3 audio books?
