I’ve always loved having books read to me.
When libraries first started lending books on audio cassettes, I was one of the early adopters. It was wonderful to be able to kick back, relax and listen. Perhaps especially when I was in the car.
With stories to keep me company, long trips were a breeze. Peak hour traffic when the freeway was a car park? No problem!
Catching every red light on the way? No hassle at all – it just meant I’d get through another chapter.
So it was a very natural next step when I could borrow downloadable audio-books from the library and listen to them on my Android phone instead.
But, once upon a time, if you’d suggested I’d start reading e-books on my phone, I’d have laughed. After all, nothing could replace the ease and enjoyment of holding a real book in my hands. And reading on a small screen? That would be a total pain – no way I’d do it!
I was wrong! :)
