The Audiobook Experiment: How I Consumed 10 Books in 3 Months Without Sitting Still

Do you ever feel like everyone is telling you to read more, but you just can’t seem to find the time? Well, you’re not alone. As an entrepreneur who works 12 hours a day, I used to be an avid reader, but my lifestyle simply doesn’t allow me to sit still and read anymore. I even bought the top-of-the-line Kindle Oasis that influencers sell like it’s some magic pill that’ll inculcate a reading habit, but it’s been collecting dust for months. But fear not, my fellow busy bees! I found a fix, and it’s called audiobooks.

Why Reading Doesn’t Work for Everyone

Let’s face it – reading isn’t for everyone. While some people enjoy the process of reading, others may find it tedious, or simply don’t have the time to devote to it. However, just because you can’t sit down and read a physical book doesn’t mean you should give up on learning and consuming knowledge altogether.

Discovering the Magic of Audiobooks

Enter audiobooks – the perfect solution for those who can’t or don’t enjoy reading. With audiobooks, you can consume knowledge while doing other activities, such as commuting to work, doing chores, or working out. And with the vast selection of titles available on platforms like Audible and Scribd, you’re sure to find something that interests you.

Tips for Maximising Your Listening Experience

While listening to audiobooks may seem straightforward, there are certain tips and tricks you can use to maximise your listening experience. For example, choose the right audiobook – something that interests you and matches your current mood. You can also listen at a faster speed, taking notes or highlighting key points as you go along. And, if you’re struggling to stay focused, try incorporating ambient noise or music to help you concentrate.


While reading is undoubtedly a great way to gain knowledge, it’s not the only way. Audiobooks are a convenient and accessible alternative, especially for those with busy lifestyles. So don’t let the “book snobs” shame you into thinking that listening to audiobooks is inferior to reading. As long as you’re consuming knowledge in some form, that’s all that matters. And who knows, maybe one day you’ll even be able to proudly display your well-worn audiobook collection for all to see. But until then, keep on listening and learning, my friends.
