I am a fan of reading.
I used to love going to a cafe after work or on the weekend. Buy myself an overly expensive cup of coffee and sit at the corner reading my book for hours. So much so that most of the folks in my favorite cafe knew my order and always asked about which book I was reading that day.
That was several years ago before I decided to donate all my free time to this thing called Business. Since that decision, I discovered shared a shared work-space called WeWork where I go to do everything other than my regular 9-5 work.
I went a year or so without reading a complete book during this phase of my life. Then I discovered audio-books. Magic.
I was reading when I was communing.
I was reading when I was walking for leisure.
I was reading when I was working out.
I was reading when I was cleaning my house.
I was reading when I was cooking.
I was reading at 1.5X normal rate and rereading a few times in less time..
In short, audio-books have made me a more efficient reader.
If I have the luxury of time, I would prefer my cafe experience to read but until then, audio-book is my choice of app to consume books.
