A True Confession of an Audiobook Listener

Running-Book

I sometimes listen to audiobooks on double speed. Now, I know, it sounds weird, but hear me out! Sometimes the readers are SO SLOW! And it takes forever to get through a book!

If you’re listening with the infatoverdrive app, there’s a little button that says “1x.” If you click on it, you can change the speed at which you’re listening to 1x (regular), 1.5x (one and a half speed) or 2x (for the advanced listener).

It does sound a little nuts at first, but you’d be surprised at how fast you’ll get used to it.  It doesn’t work for all books — sometimes you want to appreciate that language and tone and setting and it’s a little hard to do that when you’re flying at top speed, but for those plot driven books, it’s pretty fun.

Give it a try! Let us know what you think!
