I've kinda hit a strange place in my reading right now. For the last couple of weeks, I've been without an audiobook to which I want to listen.
I have nothing in Audible at the moment save for some freebies from months ago that hold zero interest to me. And the Sherlock Holmes collection I picked up a couple years ago just doesn't sound (ha ha) like something I want to tackle right now.
In Libby (nee Overdrive) none of the books I have in my To Read list are currently available and, honestly, only three of them are actually available in audiobook format (Mike Diamond & Adam Horovitz's Beastie Boys Book, Michelle Zauner's Crying in H Mart, and Marie Kondo's Joy at Work). The rest are all ebooks of which I have a monster backlog to check out so who knows when I'll get to them.
As a result, I think, at least for when I'm taking walks and out in my car, that I may actually GULP listen to some podcasts for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Well, not truly the first time. I've listened VERY sporadically, but it's been so rare that I've quit a majority of my subscriptions. But, I will likely keep up with David Tennant Does a Podcast With..., The Opus, and, when it finally returns, George Takei's Oh Myyy Pod.
Oh, and my company has its own podcast called SmartBug on Tap, the backlog of which I am going to tackle.
There are 110 episodes, but they're short, with most clocking in between four and six minutes and only a handful at north of 10 minutes. So it won't take too long to get through them all. A week or two, perhaps?
I'm not sure how long this return foray into podcasts will last, but at least it's something to listen to for the time being. And easy to jump away from should one of my audiobooks be made available.
