Is listening reading?
I have a pretty intense book goal for 2012 of 52. That's one book a week and let me tell you something. I'm failing. BIG TIME. No surprise really. I used to read over lunch and now my lunch time has been cut in half and I need to use that short time to accomplish other things like check my personal email and Pinterest account (that's super important!) because I actually work now during those 8 hours and not just fuck off on the internet. I've read 5 books which is good but not going to help me reach this ridiculous dream I made. Now I've turned to audio books. I'm in the car for a good chunk every day and I'm kinda over my music selection so I'm now listening to books. I can't read and drive but I can listen and drive. I know my goal is to "read" 52 books this year but if I "listen" to a book it's so going on my list. It's multitasking at it's finest, but to tell you the truth I feel lame and I wasn't going to tell anyone. Now that the truth is out, tell me, have you ever listened to audio books?
