Hey guys! I decided to repost this in case people wanted inspirations for things to do while listening to an audiobook. I’m currently listening to Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. What was the last book you listened to?
I recently asked the twitter community what they did while listening to audio books, and I compiled all the answers along with some of my own. I wanted to try sectioning them out into the level of difficulty that each activity would be. (This is personal preference, so difficulties may vary).

- Painting nails
- Taking a bath/shower
- Going on a walk
- On the commute to work

- Falling asleep (with a timer, of course)
- Getting ready in the morning
- Doing chores
- Coloring books
- Scrolling through social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc) – @caitlinalthea
Any other ideas? Let me know down below!! I’d be happy to add them to the list 🙂
