After a 4 1/2 mile hike with my dog Lexi today I decided to take a few hours to myself and go for a morning coffee at Caffe Luxxe.
I met a friend there for a mocha and then hung out for a bit to listen to my Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn audio book while relaxing in the sun for a bit before heading back to work.
What I love about a great book in the audio form is the fact that I can listen to the books in traffic. Since there is so much traffic in Los Angeles, I typically spend about 1 hour on average in the car a day between appointments, meetings, errands, and school drop of and pick up.
I have listened to books by Emily Griffin, classics like the Damned and the Beautiful, and diet books like Wheat Belly. These books are great to past the time while in traffic or while walking the dog during the early morning hours on a winter morning.
Reading a book definitely has a place in my life and I do quite a bit of reading at bedtime on a daily basis, however an audio book is very convenient and entertaining in traffic while commuting to and from work.
