Elena | 1381 comments Omg Krissy!! Awesome! How do you manage to listen to so many? What's your secret?!?
I generally listen to books that are about 10 hours long , so max i can do one book in two days - 5 hrs a day....


message 8: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3109 comments I always listen to my audiobooks at the highest speed. So a 10 hour book only takes half that time or less(depends on the app i use) to get through. I listen when I do my housework and when I run errands. And even when I grocery shop. Basically whenever I get a second I'll be listening.


message 9: by Elena (new)

Elena | 1381 comments Top speed!!! Yeeesss! Why have i never thought of that?!?!?!


message 10: by Elena (new)

Elena | 1381 comments Thanks :)))

I usually start at normal speed then slowly work up to top. If you try to start out at top speed you won't be able to follow. But try next time. Just slowly up the speed one notch every 5 mins or so until you get to a speed you like. Then you can just breeze through the book :)


message 12: by Elena (new)

Elena | 1381 comments Thanks! U r absolutely right - started a book at x2 speed and couldn't figure what was happening! Need to figure out a way to find a speed in between! I might need to download a different app... Because with the regular player now i only have the options to play regular speed, 1/2 speed, or double speed!

Speed depends on the narrator and book.

True, but Krissy mentioned slowly turning up the speed one notch every 5 mins or so - I definitely don't have that option on my player...

I think I will try to sneak one more in today


message 16: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3109 comments Finished my last one for the month. 37 is my final count.

Ezi, how was the narration for Perfect Imperfections? I see you gave it 3 stars but was that for the story or for both narration and story? I have to read it in Dec but I don't want to waste any $ on the audiobook if the narration is crap.

the narration wasn't that good. The story was enjoyable, but it wasn't above a 3.5 star for me.

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3109 comments Yuck. Guess I'll just read the ebook then. That's very disappointing to hear. I had high hopes for that one. Thanks for letting me know!

you could get used to it, I enjoyed the ebook which I read 1/4th before I switched to audio

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3109 comments I would if the audio was available for a discount if you borrow the ebook but it isn't. So I'd have to fork over the full price or use one of my coveted audible credits. And no way am I going to do that for a book this short! I'll just suck it up and read it.

LOL, that's what I had to do, suck it up and use one of my credits. I used up my last credit yesterday buying Against the Grain (THIRDS #5) by Charlie Cochet . I get two more next week :D

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3109 comments I really wish audible allowed you to loan out audiobooks like you can ebooks. That would make my life so much better!
