As you can see, my books. my life. is back up. Thank you for your patience while I put it in hiding for a few days. Before I get back into my normal routine, I thought I’d share my new audiobook bookmarking system with you.
I always had a hard time keeping track of my place in audiobooks. I listen to them from my phone so that it’s easy to listen wherever I am (house, car, etc) but I also listen to music on my phone pretty regularly. When I would switch back and forth, I would lose my place. I tried sticky notes, I tried the notes app on the phone, I tried simple memory (that was the biggest failure). Then one day, inspiration struck. I could take a screen shot of my phone that would quickly capture my place down to the second.
This has worked flawlessly so far. It’s so simple that I can’t believe I didn’t think of it ages ago. Genius, right?
How do you bookmark your audiobooks?
PS – iPhone users, you can take a screenshot by simultaneously pressing the home and power buttons.
