You know you’re an audiobook junkie when …

  1. You drive past your house because the end is near.
  2. You walk in to work late because the book’s end was more important.
  3. You spend much more time cleaning the house or cooking dinner than you would otherwise.
  4. People look at you strangely in the grocery store because you are laughing or crying, but no one is with you.
  5. You sit still in traffic and just loving it.
  6. You secretly hope that your significant other won’t offer to come with you while you take the dog for a walk.
  7. Your spouse knows if you’re wearing earphones, that it might be a minute before he/she can talk – they know to wait for the “hands up, 1 minute” sign. And they’re good with that.
  8. You’d rather drive a long distance alone than with a friend b/c you know you won’t be able to listen to your book if he/she’s with you.
  9. You are telling the officer that just pulled you over to hang on.
  10. You arrive in time to catch the shuttle to your office, but you decide to walk so you have more time to listen to your book.
  11. You add 10 minutes to your workout on the exercise bike just so you can finish the chapter.
  12. Taking your player to a restaurant and you are the one asking the waiter what he wants.
  13. Your two most common words are, “Sorry what?”
  14. You start laughing on the treadmill and the guy lifting weights in front of you gives you a dirty look, because he is SURE you are laughing at him.
  15. People think you have developed the Turrets syndrome
  16. Doing laundry is a treat, not a chore
  17. You and your dog are getting more and more fit
  18. You can relate to a lot of these posts and are soooo relieved that you are not the only one.

I stumbled upon this thread on Goodreads for audio book lovers on how you know you’re an audio book junkie. I found it so hilarious I had to share it with you. Change some of the details, and I can relate to no. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18. I guess I’m an audio book junkie 😀

Do you listen to audio books? And can you relate to this?
