This week Booking Through Thursday asks: Do you ever listen to book-related podcasts? If so, which ones and why?. . . Or, of course, there’s the flip side . . . did you even know that such a thing existed?
OK, I know this is going to sound weird. But I really don't like my computer to talk to me. In fact, I usually have the little speakers turned off, so I don't know if it's talking or not. If your blog makes a noise or plays music or has a spoken greeting of some sort, I probably don't know about it. If I want sound, I'll turn on the radio or the TV or the CD player (yes, I still have CDs). I recently acquired an iPod, but I haven't used it much yet (still in the process of downloading music). I don't mind watching (and listening to) brief videos on You Tube or Facebook, etc.; but anything longer than that I find sort of annoying.
So I think I can safely say I've never listened to a single podcast, book-related or otherwise. I guess you could say that, while I know what they are (in theory, anyway), podcasts don't really figure prominently in my world of books and reading. Don't have anything against them. Just haven't been bitten by the podcast bug yet.
Of course, that might change after I read everyone's BTT posts today.
