738 – Audio Books

When did you buy your first MP3 player? I think it was probably around 2004-5. I bet yours was stuffed with music. Mine wasn’t. I had some music, but it has never been a great love, I know what I like and tend to stick with it.

Podcasts were a revelation, “radio” shows about topics that I was interested in, produced to a high quality on a regular basis. I had quite a list of them that I would listen to usually on my way to work, in the early days of the MP3 that was a two hour drive each way so my journeys were usually never boring, and passed much more quickly than I had a right to expect.

I still listen to podcasts, although the list has shrunk, and are not as regular as they used to be. Perhaps I should look in to that. In fact, I will do. Plus of course, I now don’t have a separate phone and MP3 player. Audio Books then are a bit different to podcasts, the main thing being that they are not free. But, for what i consider to be a reasonable price, I get one a month for a fixed price.

There are my old favourite Science Fiction; Larry Niven, Ben Bova, Arthur C Clarke and others and at the moment, I am listening to Jeffrey Archers The Clifton Chronicles a series of I think four books. I am on Book three and it is absolutely gripping.

Of course the problem comes when you finish a book early, I could pay the full price, or wait until the beginning of the month when I get the next credit. Which is why I can use podcasts to fill the gap. Hopefully.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
