Book Blogger Hop 

 

I was recently introduced to the Book Blogger Hop by the lovely K T Robson so today I will be answering my first question courtesy of The Coffee Addicted Writer.

This week’s question is “Do you read along with your audiobooks?” which was submitted by the Paperback Princess.

The easy answer to that is no. Honestly, until I saw this question it had never even crossed my mind to do so. I think this is probably because I tend to turn to audiobooks either when I want to do something at the same time, such as cross-stitching, or when I am lying in bed at night and can’t sleep. There are two problems with this though. I find that if I am cross-stitching or doing some other craft or activity, I forget that I am also supposed to be paying attention to the book and then suddenly realise that I have no idea what has just happened. If I listen in bed, I tend to fall asleep and lose my place that way. I swear when it comes to audiobooks, I spend longer trying to find my place than I do actually listening. That’s why when insomnia strikes I tend to head for the old faithful Harry Potter – I have read the books so many times that it really doesn’t matter if I nod off at any point.

Next time I have an audiobook, I might give reading along a try and see how it goes. I am quite a fast reader though and always used to end up reading ahead whenever we were reading out loud in class, so we will see how it goes. When I do this little experiment, I will let you all know how it goes.

How about you? Do you read along?
