This week’s topic relates to three changes in my life:
Change # 1:
11 years ago I moved and took my current job. I have about 2 1/2 hours in the car each day commuting. When I started my old car had a cassette drive! Today I still love books on cd because I can get them much faster from the library, but I also listen to e-audio on my phone. So…..
Audiobooks are the majority of my reading now. Yes, I count that as reading!
Change # 2
A few years after that change, Downton Abbey and the fan fiction movement led me back to my lifelong desire to write. I have three works in progress and one “Facebook serial”. The WIPs are heading toward agent-shopping thanks to working with a developmental editor. One starts its journey in the new year. So….
Fiction is now the majority of my reading–I used to read mostly nonfiction, especially history.
Change # 3
When the Kindle Fire was introduced, a friend updated and gave me her Kindle Paperwhite. [I’ve since bought a Kindle Fire, too]. Sadly, I didn’t love the Kindle, but I DO love having the Kindle App on my large Android phone. I always have a book with me, but don’t have to carry a satchel of a purse to do so! So….
I now read e-format as well as print.
My reading has also been affected by a few decisions I’ve made regarding what I will no longer try to read.
