This will probably not be the last post on audiobooks here. As I’ve mentioned before, I struggle with them. I’m used to listening to music and thinking of other things (daydreaming), so I just stop paying attention at some point. In June I gave Storytel another try, and even listened to a whole book! (Norse Mythology – Neil Gaiman’s voice was apparently nice enough to keep my attention). But, I think € 18 is a bit hefty if I only manage to hear/read 1 book per month, so I cancelled the subscription.
Now they sent me this offer – one month for € 1 (ish, it was in SEK since I joined their .se site). How can I resist that?
And – I’ve finished three books already, two of which were the audio kind. The thing that got me this time was the cross-functionality/sync between audio and e-books that lets you switch between the two versions as you wish. Brilliant! So now I’ll have to re-consider if I think it’s worth the money anyway… luxury problems.
(I thought this notion was great btw – saying that women don’t marry (people who are like) their dads, they marry (people who are like) their moms. From this book.)
