In Middle school I had to read a very interesting and exciting book; Robinson Crusoe. It's a great book and I enjoyed it. But Lord knows I'd fall asleep as soon as I started reading. There was something about the process of reading that put me to sleep. The only way I could get through it was when my mom read it out loud to me.
Then one day out of the blue, I thought about Librivox.org. Listening to books had to be different, right? I could knit, wash dishes, go on a bike ride, etc.
Crime and Punishment was one of the first audiobooks I listened to, and it was a life-saver. I could not sit down and read that book but I tore through the audiobook and loved it. I actually went back and listened to it again later because it was so good. In college, I listened to all my homework assignments; Bleak House, Emma, Canterbury Tales (hard to find), Dorian Gray, and some others. But listening to it made it come alive, and it kept me awake.
And I got my Christmas gifts done on time.
