Vince and I watch a good many movies. We had Netflix but have cancelled that because (1) price increases made it no longer worth it to us and (2) Vince has found other places where we can get movies . . I don’t even know where he finds them all. We have Amazon Prime and Hulu and maybe something else. He likes totally different movies from what I like and though he finds movies we both like, I know there are others he likes that he doesn’t watch when I’m around . . which is pretty much always.
I’ve started listening to audio books through the Houston Public Library or our local library. I love being able to download those books, listen to them, return them . . without ever getting out of my chair. I’ve finished four books since the first of the year. I put my noise cancelling headphones on and knit, Vince watches his movie and we’re both happy.
This morning Vince said “Did you know we can get magazines and many newspapers through the Houston Public Library? Nope . . didn’t know that. Briefly I scanned through the magazines and added a few to my reading list.
We also have Kindle Unlimited but with the magazines and audio books, I haven’t been reading much but I am saving a lot by not buying Kindle books.
The Houston Public Library lets you put a hold on 15 audiobooks but since they cover all of Texas, there’s sometimes a long wait for some of the more popular books. The Brownwood Library lets you put a hold on 5 and then you can wish list additional books. From the looks of the wait times, there must be a whole lot of folks listening to audio books these days.
