Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries
I’ve been on the road lately – too much – but a side benefit is that I have lots and lots of time for audio books.
Here’s what I want to explain to my local librarian (who probably doesn’t care): I am not actually listening to four 14-hour books per week. I listen to one book on the first two-hour leg of my journey, the analog to my 50-page rule when reading. If I like it, I continue for a total of four hours. Then I finish by reading the print copy I already have at home. If I don’t like it after 2 hours of listening, I just switch to another audio book for the return trip.
It’s a great way to winnow down my TBR pile while conserving precious reading hours.
So here are the audio books I’ve checked out this week – and yes, I have paper copies of all of these stacked up in my spare bedroom, waiting.
