A new discovery: Audible.com
I love to exercise, but hate it because I get really bored. Something Doc "Lovely" had recommended was to use the time to study, "read," and improve yourself mentally as well. He recommended Audible.com. Not being a person of great patience when it comes to time matters, I've never enjoyed listening to someone read - its just too slow, so I haven't followed through until yesterday. Being able to do something while reading sounded just too fun!
Yesterday, I signed up on the site and downloaded the recommended book, a collaborative effort by a different author for each chapter, "The Chopin Manuscript." So far, it has been attention grabbing, not as disjointed as it could be with a different author for each chapter. I love collaborative art pieces, so why not a book? So, I am tolerating the pace, and even finding some relaxation in it.
I also downloaded a book of Cormac McCarthy's and that one is next. Since seeing No Country for Old Men, I've been intrigued by the author. Perhaps I will be able to pursue some contemporary writers - and exercise more at the same time.
I let my self be "read to sleep" last night.
