To say I’d be lost without my iPhone 6+ would be an understatement. Last year, when I had an iPhone 5 I dropped it in a lake. Doh! A colleague suggested I put it in a bag of rice and after a few hours it was fine. But for those few hours I couldn’t listen to my audio book, get emails, make phone calls, navigate my way to the airport, tell the time (I didn’t wear a watch in those days), even at the airport I couldn’t kill time playing Spell Tower.
What I missed most of all was listening to books. I’m not normally a fiction person but audio books has opened new doors. Genres I wouldn’t normally be interested in I’ve tried out and discovered some great works.
Plus I go through stages. First it was the biography / autobiography stage. Then I tried the dystopia books, then crime followed by true crime, sprinkled with self improvement and classics.
