Personally, there is something satisfying of multi-tasking. I am finding myself, more and more lately, listening to books on tape. Esp. those romantic adventures usually aimed at the female gender.
Nothing wrong with that. They're an easy "read", a fairly predictable plot that I find myself enjoying the details of how character A finally ends up with character B, and are more often than not are a good pick-me-up (well at least all the ones I've read or listened to all the way through).
I really do enjoy knitting and listening to books on tape. It's some how satisfies some weird itch somewhere. (Maybe it's b/c I am feeling somewhat productive if I knit as I listen??? - as apposed to cleaning my room while listening).
Meh, it's enjoyable and it doesnt require too much brain power to get back on track with the story line if I space out.
Hope y'all have having a lovely Friday!
