During the last few days I started to more and more question my audiobook-habit. Maybe there is just too much going on recently but I realized that I have a hard time following the books and focussing on the content. I frequently found myself drifting of and then wondering what the hell has happend in the book once I’m back.
On the other hand I have started reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett the old fashioned way and there I have the feeling that it is easier to enjoy the words, the language and the story of course. Also it is much harder to drift off, which still happens, but then at least will not miss stuff as I don’t mindlessly turn pages.
So, I guess it’s a good idea to take a break from Audiobooks for a while. I still will finish my (large-ish) backlog in Audible but focus more on reading. Finishing Good Omens and then the new Scalzi sounds like a good way to get back into it. Of course, the next book in the Expanse series is supposed to come out soon as well.
It seems I already made my decision.
