My book reading has been a little random lately, bouncing between a few novels based on mood and what is due in Libby soon. On track to read more books in a year than I ever have before. 📚

@manton Is this strictly reading on a device and/or physical books? Or do you also listen to Audiobooks?

@greghiggins Also audiobooks. Sometimes I'll get the e-book and audiobook for the same book. Some print books too.

@manton Haha, me too. I just started on The Personal MBA on Audible, and found that I would like it as a reference, so I got the pocket version too.

@manton I do that as well. Not sure how you are, but I have a tendency to only listen to fiction-type books on audio. Anything else I tend to not use audiobooks. That's not to say I won't read a fiction-type book on my kindle or iPad or a print copy.

@manton What’s your secret? (As in, what is the thing that tipped you into a new higher tier of books-read?)

@manton I read the final Harry Potter book with physical copy and audio going at the same time. It enhanced the experience. Besides, I read at audio speeds. Learned later that many heavy readers speed read as a normal thing. Never quite caught on how to do that.

@bjhess Setting goals has motivated me, but mostly I just read every day now. Personally it helps balance out the computer time with something different.
