Audio books really upped my reading habits after I started working and didn't have as much time to read, now I can listen in the car or while doing busy work at my desk.

BUT there is something special about the smell of a printed hardcover in your hands, especially when you get about halfway through and it just sort of lays open naturally.


Mama wants to change that Nashville sound, but they're never gonna let her.

I listen to audio books while fishing. No time to set aside reading a traditional book although I have tons. I do take traditional books on "phone-free" vacations. Nothing like sitting in the shade on a cool afternoon reading a good book.

One book I like is "The Truth Machine" by James Halperin

"The Truth Machine (1996) is a science fiction novel by James L. Halperin about a genius who invents an infallible lie detector. Soon, every citizen must pass a thorough test under a Truth Machine to get a job or receive any sort of license. Eventually, people begin wearing them all the time, thus eliminating dishonesty in all parts of human interaction, and eliminating crime, terrorism and a great deal of general social problems"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Truth_Machine


1984 was suppose to be a warning, not an instruction manual...
