I have been busy trying to bring some order to my husband’s audible.com mystery book queue. He cannot seem to keep his list of books in the correct order. When he finishes listening to a Colin Dexter mystery and is ready to listen to his next Reginald Hill mystery, he usually comes to me and complains that he doesn’t know which book is the next in his sequence.
Don’t get me wrong! He uses my site to see the correct chronological order, he just doesn’t annotate anything…anywhere… there is no method to his madness! It would really drive me crazy to be that (should I say?) unorganized.
If I didn’t keep a written log of the books I listen to, I would probably end up listening to the same books over and over… not catching on until the last half of the mystery book >>> “Hey, that sounds like a very familiar plot!” This would probably happen right as started listening to the fourth hour of an eight hour mystery book.
So, I am printing lists of his favorite authors’ books so that he won’t be quite so confused when it comes to picking his next book. I know that this method (the same method I use for myself) will work, since I will be the one who will mark off the books as he reads them.
