But this time, I’ve been listening while doing chores and walking the dog. It’s interesting how much attention is needed to listen and follow the story. I’ve found that I’ve had to “re-listen” to parts a couple of times, just the way I’d go back and re-read if I got a bit lost while reading. But it’s harder to find the part I need to hear again. My brain isn’t used to processing books this way, so I’m finding I have to concentrate more to visualize the story.
It's interesting. As a kid, the first stories I experienced were read to me, rather than read by me. But I'm not used to processing information that way now, after years of reading books myself.
Have you tried audio books? What do you think of them?
