Now that I’ve been listening to audiobooks on Audible and Overdrive, I’ve gotten a little spoiled. Both of those apps allow you to increase the speed of the book, which helps a lot when reading a particularly long or slow moving story.
Recently, I’ve listened two books on CD audio that I struggled to get through. Both Inkheart and The Truth According to Us took me over a month to finish. Oh how I wished I’d been listening to them on Audible or Overdrive, so I could have bumped up the speed to 1.5, or at least 1.25.
I do have a 6-disc CD changer in my car, so I can load up half an audiobook at a time. That at least makes listening and driving easier. I don’t have to load new discs every day. But I just reserved A Game of Thrones from the library on CD audio, and I’m a little nervous about listening to 33 hours at normal speed!
How do you listen to audiobooks? Do you increase the speed when using Audible, Overdrive, or other audiobook apps?
