    Hung out on the hammock with John grishams sycamore row...I really enjoyed that

    Not just the book but the whole experience

    Will this lead me to never read again?

    I used to have to drive long miles. The audiobooks were much better than anything on the radio. That's really the only time. I read other than that. I have to say that a few books were better on tape because they were read by the author. Adam carolla's books. Bob a booey's book

    My mind races to much on different things, stuff in planning, thinking ahead or reading the web news ... While I am just listening to podcast. = It all becomes a blur .... and I gotta keep hitting rewind.


    I would rather read the book it's self -- But while @ work I find myself listening to podcast with my ear bud's in - and not wanting to spend the time reading.
