I reasoned that listening to audio books addressed the boring aspect of walking. Time would just fly by. As a bonus, I could catch up on reading.
But…I underestimated my book addiction. Once I start listening, I can't stop. I cannot let go of the story. Wait another day? Not possible. I am now committed to finishing the book. Errands are ignored. Work at home gets set aside. I find myself sitting in my car in the parking lot, just listening. Just one more minute. If I have to, going to bed is ruled out.
When reading print, I somehow accomplish more. I have more control. Not so with audio.
Once I am done listening, I now struggle. Should I download another book? Or should I stop walking?
