Audio Books To Read Faster
When I started using audio books I could instantly read more and tackle more books faster than ever before. The thing with e-books and physical books is that you have to give your readings your undivided attention. You can’t multi-task while reading, these types of books because you just can’t focus on more than one thing at a time, a book needs your 100% focused attention.
Audio books can be read while doing simple tasks
An audio book is different though, they can be read while doing simple tasks like driving. Every time I drive somewhere I always play a audio book.
I can easily add on 30+ minutes of reading throughout my day with audio books.

I will usually read two books at the same time, whether that’s 2 audio books or 1 audio book and another e-book. I’ll usually schedule 25 minutes every day or one Pomodoro to reading an e-book. Then whenever I’m resting, driving, or even cooking I’ll listen to my audio book. I really don’t schedule time for audio books I just listen to them whenever I have the chance to.

Audio books are great for people that just can’t get into the habit of reading because you don’t have to dedicate your time to them. They can be listened to while doing almost any task that doesn’t involve much brain work.
