I was a voracious reader as a child, so it is no surprise that I essentially read for a living. With working full time, two kids under three and attempting to be social and fit, I don’t have time to indulge in reading for pleasure. But I live in Houston and sit in traffic a lot. After listening to every single TED Talk and NPR for entirely too long, I’ve settled on listening to audiobooks as the best way for me to make the most of my time in the car (after I call my mum, sister and grandparents).
I love revisiting old favorites, discovering new stories and broadening my knowledge, and that audiobooks help me shrug off the annoyances of my commute. I alternate between more serious and fun books to ensure that I’m continuing to develop but also enjoying the experience. I absolutely cannot wait until my children are old enough to appreciate Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Roald Dahl, and all and my other childhood favorites!
