15+ Things to Do While Listening to an Audiobook

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?

Hey guys!

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). I thought this would be a nice guide to those starting off listening to audiobooks (like me!) or those who want some ideas.
