Hot Tips

Hot Tip Tuesday # 24, Listen while you work

A few weeks ago I explained how I listen to smooth Jazz a LOT while I work, but when I hear about a good book and don’t have time to sit and read guess what I do?  I request it from our local library on CD.  Since my daughter Chloe works there, I also have a constant lookout for the latest books by my favorite authors; Mary Higgins Clark, James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks & Debbie Macomber… She’s very handy to have around, my daughter! 

Books on CD, very convenient.  My friend Susan told me she listened while she sewed a few years ago, but I didn’t think I would like it. As part of the summer reading program last summer I listened to a book with my daughter Clare as we sewed.  I was hooked! I now keep my son Blake’s portable CD player in my room where I can change discs easily.


The best part is that I can hit pause if the phone rings or if I need to leave the room.  I don’t want to miss a thing.  I just listened to this book in two days. It was not Nicholas’ best book in my opinion, my favorite is The Wedding.  I actually read that  in paper form last summer as part of the summer reading program. 

Now I can listen while I work!  Perhaps you (other) skeptics will give it a try!

Until next time,
