I am no blogging expert. I am learning as I’m going. Some things I fuck up, somethings I pick up. Most things I just wing it. Either way here 1 thing I’ve learnt as a new book blogger part 14;
I have a lot of books. Not just review requests but my own personal books that I have bought. I mean bookcases. Okay like, 5 bookcases worth. (I know I have a problem). I feel a bit guilty when I accept book requests and then read one of my own books. But I need to get through my own ones and other peoples. I need to cut down on my books. So in order for me to do that, I need a plan.
Audiobooks. I used to hate them. I thought they were the biggest pile of shit in the biggest pile of fairy dust. (No clue, just go with it) It felt like who is this twat talking about this book when I just want to read it and see the world through my own eyes. When you listen to someone else’s voice that is not your own. It takes a little of the magic away from the movie that you are playing within your brain. Anyway, that was years and years ago. I do night shifts, we are allowed to listen to music with just one earplug in. So why not work and listen to a book. So I gave it ago again but I am sticking to just crime/thriller/contemporary based books. Books that don’t need you to imagine a whole new world. Books that I find that I don’t get too emotionally attached too unless some super dubber crazy stuff is happening.
And you know what? I have been enjoying them. I am turning into more of a cow at work though. When someone talks to me, the death glare turns on. It like seriously people I am trying to listen to a book here.
