I used to be an avid reader of fiction back in my high school days. I stopped reading fiction shortly after starting college, just didn’t have time for casual reading. I have since tried many times to pick up ficiton reading again but my imagination as I remember it seemed to be missing. Having my imagination stumped I didn’t enjoy reading as much.
My husband listens to audio books regularly on his way to work. He comes home filled with stories and plots of the books he listens to. He doesn’t know how much I enjoy his stories, but I do shhhh. I was at the library with the kids not long ago and walked passed the audio book section and started browsing thru it. My eye cought a book called Forever Odd by Dean Koontz, my husband had told me about the first book call Odd Thomas and I remember how much it cought my attention. I decided to check out the book, brought it home and started listening to it.
When I told my husband I got it he asked if he could take it and listen to it. He promised he would give it back so I could listen to it and he would take out books 3 and 4 of the same series to listen afterwards.
I couldn’t wait for him so went looking thru my library account and found downloadable books available thru my library. I am enjoying the books so much, I have 3 downloaded and listen to them as I do my kitchen etc.
My imagination is slowly coming back to me as I remember back in my high school years, and I am enjoying it very much.

I love books. I can’t conentrate and get much if I listen to them and I definatly dont get anything done if I read them. One of these days I’ll be more organized and will have the time to do what I want to do as well as what I have to do.
