I like to Read
My new job has be driving quite a bit since the counties I work in are about an hour or so to the south down I-75. This leads to much time spent in my car listening to either the radio or cds, both of which I am becoming tired. Today I decided that maybe I should look into books on tape and therefore make my trips more productive. I have never really listened to a book on tape, at least, not that I can remember. I'm not sure if I'll like them. Part of me is a book purist and think that books should only be read. But then again, maybe listening to a book on tape would be like in elementary school when my teachers would read outloud to us. However, I was always the kid who would check out whatever book the teacher was reading the class and finish it on my own because I didn't want to wait for the ending since they would read to us at what I thought was an excruciatingly slow one-chapter-a-day pace. It's a good thing I out grew being such a nerd.
