I have begun listening to audio books recently and really enjoying them. I guess this an extension of beginning to listen to podcasts. I never felt like I got much out of audio listening but for fiction or ‘review’ type non-fiction it’s perfect. One habit I am going to try and cultivate is listening to an audio book and drawing.
For new non fiction that I really want to retain, however, it is not a good medium for me. I’m finding that video is not either. Both are too slow and too easy for my attention to wander. However I am going to explore listening to an audio book as a form of review for a book I am learning from.
