Listen to audiobooks on your walk into the office
– Simon, Westcliff-on-Sea
Making time for a good book can be difficult. When you’re rushed, reading’s the first thing to drop off your to do list. But you can enjoy brilliant writing and still go about your day. Why not listen to an audiobook on the walk to and from the office? Having a story read to you is calming and you get to savour every word. Plus audiobooks don’t take up any space, and weigh no more than the phone, tablet or laptop you keep them on, making them ideal for the trip to your desk.
