the effect of an iPod and boyfriend on my reading habits:
In March 2007, I got an iPod and was listening to music in the car for a while before actually using it to listen to audiobooks during my commute. I also spent all of 2007 dating awesome boyfriend Paul, which probably cut into my reading time a bit. The 26 CDs of "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" certainly kept 1-3 other audiobooks off my plate, since the average non-doorstop book is usually about 8-10 CDs.
Grand total books read in 2007: 53 titles. number of these that were unabridged audiobooks: 15 (28%)
Grand total books read in 2006: 64 titles. number of these that were unabridged audiobooks: 37 (58%)
So I read more physical paper books in 2007, but "read" more books in 2006 when I was doing the cassette audiobooks in my car. Still, a book a week ain't bad.
