Why I Don’t Listen to Audiobooks

Lately, I’ve been hearing so many people talk about audiobooks, and how much they enjoy them. It seems as if they’re getting more attention lately, and of course that’s not a bad thing. In fact it’s a great thing, because it means more people are readingtumblr_nifhvawmsy1tq4of6o1_500!

However, for me, I could never enjoy an audiobook. Why? Mainly because I could never focus on the story when listening to them. I tried to listen to three audiobooks, and within the first few chapters, I would try to remember what I heard, and it was like my mind was blank. I couldn’t remember anything that was said.

A lot of peopl200_se talk about how they listen to audiobooks on there commute to school, or work, during breaks, cleaning, working out, whenever they have free time. I think that’s fantastic. In a way I’m jealous of people who are able to do that. I tried listening to an audiobook while cleaning, and I could not concentrate on the story at all. It ended up frustrating me to no end.

I’ve come to the conclusion that audiobooks are just not for me, and of course that’s okay. I wish they were though. While reading, I cant be doing anything else. I just have to focus on the story. That’s why I’ll be sticking with my physical and e-copies.

How do you feel about audiobooks? Do they not work for you? Do you love them? If so, what has been your favorite audiobook that you listened to?

#FridayReads [2]

So this weekend I’ll be reading American Sniper by Chris Kyle. Honestly, this is completely different from anything that I usually read. I rarely read autobiographies, but I saw this one at my thrift store for 50 cents and I couldn’t pass it up. I know a movie was made from this, which I have yet to watch.

22492903

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

This autobiography caught my attention and so far I’m 30ish pages into it and am quite enjoying it! Have you guys read this book? Have you watched the movie? What are your thoughts?
