Mostly audiobooks and a long commute plus every chance I get to listen or read while walking the dogs, eating lunch, etc.

Steven Shaw Thanks, Thomas. I've started enjoying audiobooks in the last couple of years too. No commute time here as working from home. Need to carve out more personal/reading time!

Thomas Taking a long walk, grocery shopping, and other errands are also good times to get some audiobook listening in. I'll also sometimes just put my headphones on while I'm doing various household odds and ends.

Steven Shaw 👍. I get a number of audiobooks via my local council library (mostly on Overdrive but also Bolinda). Audible looked a bit expensive last time I looked. Any other recommendations for sourcing more audiobooks at competitive rates?
