As a tool to increase your reading time. In one of his Author Level Up videos, Michael La Ronn discusses how audiobooks can be used to increase your aggregate reading time, when time is at a premium.
Although the video is targeted at authors, the ideas therein could apply to anyone.
I agree with Mr. La Ronn’s comments about audiobooks, obviously.
I would add another tip to his list, however: reading while you’re on your stationary bike.
As I’ve noted in this space before, I use my daily cardio ride to catch up on my reading. In my case, that’s about 40 extra minutes of reading each day.
