I just finished a book that I’ve been trying to read for years – Richard Branson’s Losing My Virginity. Because I’ve been really struggling to read any book in the past couple of years, I got this one as an audiobook from Audible. I listened to Richard recount his life as a successful entrepreneur on my morning runs – it was a very enjoyable way to spend some quality time, just me and Richard and the cold hard road.
Like I’ve said before, I really love listening to audiobooks, and Audible is a quick, cheap and convenient way for both Stephen and I to enjoy books we would otherwise not get a chance to read. We have a subscription that gives us one audiobook of our choosing each month, and I find that’s about the right amount of time to get through a medium-sized book. We’ve even built book-listening into our weekly routine. ‘Date-Sunday’ consists of us going to our coffee place (chosen because it has comfy sofas and good cake) and listening to whatever we’ve each downloaded that month. It’s great together/apart time, and is a precious part of my week.
