    I read it daily, along with his other comic, On The Fast Track, though it should probably be renamed Dethany.

    Right now I am reading The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester. Pretty amusing so far.

    OMG! @Dngrsone.
    You are up to date with that webcomic? I've still got 9 years to go.
    Never heard of it until my op. Fell in love since.

    LOL, you've got some reading to do. Yeah, I read it as close to daily as I can... Some days I just can't find to time get my morning fix in, but then I'll catch up on everything.

    In fact, I think it's time to trim some comics out of my Morning Coffee Quantum lists-- Today's queue is 28 comics, but a couple have ended, and some of them are heading in directions I don't feel up to reading. But Holbrook will always be there.

    Meanwhile, I am listening to The Two Towers on audio during my work commute, and I just read the first two Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells... the third is on hold at the library.

    I may pick up another "Jack" Daniels book next.

    Is "Least I Could Do" still a thing?
    OTR is my audio story format of choice so to speak. It stands for Old Time Radio.

    Yes. Depending on the last time you read it, there have been format changes on the site, but all the Blind Ferret properties are going strong.

    Ooh, he looks familiar... but it's not Bunny. Bunny is usually pink, isn't he? There's a comic I haven't followed for a while.

    I like to read books only when I have time. I read constantly when I was in school. I am a student now, besides, I work after university. I don't have time to read books. By the way I recently ordered here book report help.
    It is good that for busy students there is such an opportunity now. As there will be time, I will surely read all the necessary literature.

    Audiobooks are a nice alternative, particularly if you commute. Your local library probably has an audiobook collection.

    I'm an Evlyn Wod Sped reed graduate.

    Unless there's a soundtrack, more than one reader.reader... I get bored.

    The narration can certainly make or break the experience.

    I couldn't stand listening to the BBC radio drama version of LoTR, the ensemble cast describing narrative parts and weird music interludes were too distracting. Rob Inglis' narration was much better, though his singing the many songs/poems left something to be desired (so that's why there is a 30sec forward button on my player!)

    Currently, I am listening to Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll by Anne and Nancy Wilson, narrated by all the participants in the memoir: Anne, Nancy, Richard Fischer, Sue Ennis, etc.

    What's the thing you read before listening @Dngrsone.
    A newspaper?

    The thing I read before listening?

    I have my tablet, which has--you know, ebooks... In the morning, I hit the intarwebs, do this site, and a few other forums, email, read my daily webcomics.

    I listen to audiobooks only during my work commute, which is about 40-60 minutes (depending on weather, traffic, etc), so LoTR took me several months to complete.

    I do not report every book I read here, otherwise this thread would be nothing but Dngrsone posts-- I've done 105 books this year, and put down a couple dozen, I'm sure, without finishing.

    That's all? Hmm.

    I'm reading an ebook from Spider Robinson called "Very Bad Deaths" downloaded from baen.com.

    I can't see ebooks replacing physical media ever.
    Never ever.

    What if the power fails?

    As long as the sun works you can read paper half the day.

    Finished listening to Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll. Unfortunately, I failed to install any more books in my car before I got to the end.

    Bad timing this happened when I got an extra couple hours of commute today, LOL.
