Combining Audiobooks

I usually listen to audiobooks on the way to work every morning. I turn on the car, switch my input to bluetooth and my current audiobook starts playing. Sometimes it’s Audible. Sometimes it’s Libby. It all works beautifully. Usually.

I almost always have multiple books going. Paper, Kindle, audio… at least 5 are started at a time. It keeps me from getting bored, and I usually have some form of a book at my finger tips.

I have also been using the Audible freebies for sleep. This works best when I am in bed. I don’t do this in the car. I did want to make it clear that I don’t try to sleep on the way to work. Some days, I am not awake driving, but it’s not intentional. It’s just that I haven’t had coffee yet.

One of the best sleeping audiobooks has been A Short Account of the History of Mathematics. The narrator has a soothing voice and the topic is not very exciting. It works like a charm.

I had been trying to finish up We Have Always Lived in the Castle. It’s a horror story, and I knew where I had left off. The characters were being described.

I got into the car and the audiobook started up. I spaced out for a second and I didn’t look at what the phone and car decided to play. I was trying to figure out why the characters in my horror book were learning how to do multiplication. I had gotten the two books confused when the wrong book started up. At least I figured it out, eventually. At least the horror book wasn’t that strange.
