Books are a great source of information. Fiction or non-fiction, there is always something to learn that could help out later on in life. It's not every day, however, that you get the down time needed to read books. With everything else you have to deal with, reading sometimes gets pushed, shoved, and thrown to the side. It doesn't have to be like this.

Let someone else read for you. From beginning to end, let someone do all the talking. Bookmark new stories or the ones that you like to read over and over again, and gain access to them without having to scroll through the library each and every time you want a book. Quicken the speed of narration or slow it down according to the pace you are most comfortable of. Moreover, you can always settle down to enjoy listening to a good book even if you are offline.
