  1. Technology has made it so much easier to read on the go. Some of Stephen King’s books require intensive training to carry them around, the Kindle makes it a whole lot easier and lighter.

  2. I have tried in the past to listen to a book on tape (in the car) and discovered I’m definitely a visual learner, not an audio one. I miss so much of the text and nuance when trying to listen to a book, instead of reading. Disappointing, but a fact of life for me.
    However, if I’m waiting at the doctor’s office, or flying on an airplane (which seems to happen a lot lately), I have my little lined notebook in my purse (very old school, I know…) and I write little pieces that either become blog posts or ‘pods’ for my next book. On the ‘new school’ version, I also take my Kindle with me everywhere, but listening to it just isn’t an option for me. Great suggestions, though!

    • Thank goodness for writers notebooks and Kindle though! I hear you on the audio–there are some books that are really “dense” that are just too difficult for me to listen to on audio, and as for nuances, I alway end up buying once I like in print so I can go back and mark them up! Wow–I am such a tree killer. ;)

  3. This is a fantastic post. I spend a lot of time in the car, and podcasts seem like a great thing to do while I’m waiting it out before my next destination. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve commented, but it’s been a horribly busy several months. I’m back and missed ya!
