I’m just shocking with digital books, I buy them, start reading and promptly forget they’re there. Perhaps it’s the lack of physicality, the lack of physical cue to remind me I bought something I wanted to read.
I like the idea of digital books and bookshelves as I don’t need to physically store yet another book, I just haven’t managed the reminder part. I also find I tend to fall asleep when reading the digital books far easier than I did the paper equivalent; do you find the same?
A colleague at work was sharing her experience listening to audible books in the car when driving to work, which inspired me to check these out. Though I’ll not listen in the car as a short ten minute drive would see a book take years to be ‘read’, listening to it in bed I’m finding far easier and lasting longer.
I’ve started off with a book I’d already paid for with Amazon months ago when I started my course, Hackable by Ted Harrington. It’s quite interesting, only up to chapter four thus far and already he’s discussed a client who’s ignored advice and months later suffered a catastrophic attack that might have otherwise been avoided.
Going to need to keep my headphones 🎧 charged. Wonder what I’ll read next?
