I enjoy listening to books, because they give my eyes a break and because I can do something else at the same time. Actually, I can’t do just anything else, just a few things, and it depends if I’m listening for learning or for pleasure.

I can listen for learning when

  • walking to or from work, or anywhere else I have been many times before

  • cooking something simple that I have made a dozen times or more, like breakfast

  • waiting in line, waiting at the doctor’s office

  • on a plane, train, or other transit

I can listen for pleasure in all of the places that work for learning, as well as when

  • cooking something new

  • walking or driving somewhere new

  • grocery shopping
