Used a Different Method of Reading Today – Go Set A Watchman


witherspoon24f-1-webUnlike my daily routine of riding public transit, today I drove to the office.  On my drive I listened to Go Set A Watchman, Harper Lee’s new (old) book.  The audio book is read by Reece Witherspoon, herself a Southerner, who reads with a very pleasant voice.

gosetwatchmanI started reading the book earlier in the day, and I read the epub version in iBooks, all the while listening to the audio book.  This is the first time I have tried being read to and reading along with the speaker.  I liked it. I found it very enjoyable and profitable.

It was quite the experience for me.  I much prefer being read to at home.  I can focus on what I am hearing.

So, I am going to complete reading and listening to this book and will do a review of it.
