Using this spreadsheet will allow you to see how much time you spend listening to audiobooks each day, week and month throughout the year of 2022. You can see comparisons between the recorded length of audiobooks and actual listening time. The comparisons include the page number of the print edition as well. This allows you to track how much time you spend on audiobook while giving you a tangible idea of quantity. Since some narrators speak slower and others faster, the page number is a more consistent reference point. This is also great if you want to track audiobooks alongside the print or ebook editions that you read.
Welcome back to The Happy Place 5! I fell off the bandwagon for a bit, but I’m back and determined to join in the 2022 topics more regularly. So, to kick of the (still somewhat) new year, we decided to round up the books we meant to red last year… but didn’t. For me, that’s a few hundred books — 400 to to be precise. These are the books I own and have yet to read. That’s why I thought about books I had planned on last year but woefully left on my TBR pile.
2022 is nearly upon us, which means it’s the season for new year’s resolutions. Statistically, most people give up on their resolutions. So how do we beat the odds? A great way to stick to a resolution is to track consistency and progress. When it comes to books and reading, there are a lot of options available today. Goodreads is probably the best known one but over the past few years, more options have sprung up.
This month’s topic of The Happy Place 5 is fall vibes. We decided to keep things open-ended to give ourselves a breather. I’ve technically taken an eight-month breather, and I’m barely surfacing again on the blogging front. Hah. But autumn is my favourite season. I love the hues of reds fading into yellows. Sadly, I live in the tropics. Instead of pretty colours, I contend with dreary monsoon thunderstorms. So, to cheer myself up, I turned to my bookshelves for my fall vibes picks.
This month’s topic of The Happy Place 5 is new beginnings, particularly first book in series. We’re meant to share upcoming series were excited about but I’ve not been keeping up with new publications. Since I also own dozens of first books in series that I have yet to read, I decided to turn to my bookshelf. I picked out five series that I want to start this year, mostly based on how excited I was when I first acquired these books.
