I don’t know about you, but the last year has really changed the way I read.
Not that I don’t read the same things; I don’t think it will ever be possible for me to leave historical romance alone!
But more the way I read, both when I read and what medium I end up reading on.
I am a paperback queen – I probably have about 2000 books (and counting!), and I find it incredibly difficult to get rid of a book because I only ever buy what I truly love.
I have an e-reader, but I always used it for travelling because I would find it impossible to decide what books to take with me on a journey. My e-reader, honestly, is collecting dust. This last year, I haven’t gone far from home due to the pandemic, and I’ve discovered that I have a new way of reading: audiobooks.
When I was a kid, I loved audiobooks. I must be one of millions that had Harry Potter audiobooks on cassette tape, and there was many a car journey that my parents managed to endure by putting a new story on!
But as I grew older, I grew out of the habit.
And now I’m back! Listening to books has been an incredible way to absorb new stories while I’m walking, or doing the dishes, or even hoovering (if I can get the volume loud enough!).
What about you? How has the pandemic changed the way you read?
