My Ramblings: Audio Books On Fast Mode

Audio Books On Fast Mode

So speeding up audio books is now my middle name... Oops.

All that after having posted about how I initially thought those "types" of people were monsters. It was like I could officially scrunch up my aristocratic nose at anyone who dared do such a horrid (in my former opinion) thing.

I'm definitely eating my words with this one! It's like I'm rediscovering reading all over again if that makes any sort of sense. Especially with my unknown eye allergy, I have become one with audio books on bad days. Add that to my ever-growing need to always read more, read faster, read, read, read speeding up audio books even to *gasp* 2X is exhilarating.

I think we've all learned an important lesson here today: Don't knock it until you've tried it. I thought I had already learned this lesson a LONG time ago but hey! Here's to forever learning and growing as human beings!

Do you listen to audio books?
Do you *gasp* speed them up?
Let me know in the comments below!


  1. I don't normally do audio because I tend to wander and lose focus and then have to go back lol. But if I did I might go faster too, because I've heard people say audio takes forever sometimes? I don't know, I've never done it though. :)

    Yay for new things!!

    1. I used to do that a lot in the beginning! I eventually got used to it though. It's almost like my brain had a learning curve for audio books for a while there. Depending on the narrator audio books can be so slow moving. Everyone has different tastes but the longer I've been listening to them the more picky I get. :)

  2. I found I cannot go past 1.25 X. If the voices get too high pitched, they annoy me, and if the characters are talking to fast, I miss stuff, because I often listen to audiobooks as I do other things.

    1. 1.25x was also my limit. There has been one narrator that took me to 2x. I just couldn't take it anymore! I totally get the annoyance with high pitched voices. There are some narrators normal voices that grate without ever needing to be sped up! I don't usually have the problem of missing things on sped up audio books because I listen to them to relax before falling asleep. I can't pay attention to an audio book while doing something else. It become background noise to a degree that I forget it's even there (because I'm usually in a rush to get whatever it is I'm doing over with fast so I can watch a show or read a book).
