If you’ve never listened to an audiobook before, there are things you can do to help you enjoy the experience more. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Pick the Right Books
Just like reading a paper book, it’s important for you to spend time finding the right book to read. The only difference is that you’ll peruse a list of books online instead of standing in the bookstore for an hour, reading book backs. You can look up the New York Times Bestseller list to get an idea of what’s hot. Think of the books you’ve read that really spoke to you. What genre where they? Why did you like them so much? Once you have a list of criterion for your “perfect book”, look for books that fit that list.
Choose Appropriate Times to Listen
You can listen to audiobooks while in the car, at the Laundromat, at work, or while winding down to go to sleep. However, some books may be hard to concentrate on during certain tasks.
Preview, Preview, Preview!
These days, you can preview an audiobook before you buy it. Take the time to listen to the first 5-10 minutes of the book so you can evaluate it properly. If you don’t like the narrator’s inflection, voice quality or speed, you won’t get through the entire book. Plus you’ll be able to preview the content.
