Hey guys! Thought I’d let you know that I’m not doing the Top Ten this week for the simply reason that I have nothing for it. The topic this week is Top Ten Best Audio Books and I simply don’t listen to audio books. I can’t. If I’m listening to an audio book, I cannot be doing anything else. Not driving, not washing dishes, not exercising. NOTHING. I have to sit in a quiet place and zone everything else out, which is totally ridiculous when I could otherwise just pull out a book and read anywhere.
Some of you are probably wondering why I can’t just listen to the book like a normal person. My mind is a wanderer and I always feel like if I get interrupted or I’m not paying attention for even just a few seconds that I’m missing something crucial to the story. It stresses me out. Therefore, it’s simply just easier to have the book in front of me and reading that. I can go back and reference something if I feel like I missed it. That’s way too much work with an audio book.
So my apologies that you’re not getting some enlightening and life-changing list from me this week, but it happens.
And it’s back to grading papers for me…180+ essays to read…
