Audiobooks - A Crocheting Reader's Best Friend

There's nothing like having a few spare moments to relax and crochet. For a big reader like myself, I like to use this time to get some “reading” done too. While there is some controversy whether listening to audios is actually considered reading, I find it's a great companion for crochet, plus I get to listen to some really great books!

Having a library card gives me access to many great titles to choose from. My library also has several formats available; CD's to checkout, MP3, WMA and iPod compatible downloads, plus new Playaways.

So if you haven't yet had the pleasure of listening while you crochet, visit your local library and see what they have to offer. You'll be pleasantly surprised!


  1. What a great idea!
    We listen to audio books when we are in the car and I'd never have thought about crocheting and audio books :-)

  2. Yes! I've spent many hours hooking away to some of my favorite books on CD. I tried for so long to turn book pages with my toes without losing my place crocheting but couldn't work it out, so audiobooks to the rescue! :)

  3. I listen to audio books and stories all the time while crocheting. My sister in Germany sends me audio CDs every year for Christmas because she knows I collect Fairy Tales from all over the world, plus they're spoken in German so I can practice listening to the German language, which is an additional bonus. I've started to check out audio books at the library now ;-)

    Do you have a Follow button on your blog? I can't find it, Julie!

    Kind Regards,

  4. Thank you all for your comments :)

    Doris, I do have a Follow button, and it is in the right hand column under "My eCrater store". Hmm, I hope it's not a problem, I'll have to check it out on someone else's computer.
