Lately, I have really been getting into audiobooks. If I am planning to have a spotty off-grid connection, I download them to my phone. I got some Bluetooth headphones a while back, as a gift, and those things paired up with some downloaded audiobooks make knocking out the honey-do list a breeze. It is a great feeling to be getting stuff done while basically reading a book and learning new stuff at the same time.
The multitasking is where the audiobooks really shine. I used to listen to music while working on my projects, but now I can knock out a reading list at the same time I’m working in the yard. I still love to crank some classic rock every now and then, but the audiobooks that teach new prepper skills or let me get into a fictional scenario are even better. It is easier than ever to learn new skills and audiobooks are one of the reasons why. You should still take time to decompress with whatever music floats your boat, but mixing in some learning can help you grow as a prepper.
Audiobooks are similar to podcasts as far as getting information on the go. They are a little more refined since there is less content. Authors and narrators put more work into an audiobook than they do for a podcast. Nevertheless, they are both good options for listening and learning.
Our article, The 10 Best Prepper Audiobooks, lists out the best options I have found in the survival audiobook world. Content is important for these, but narration as just as important. You can’t have a good audiobook without a great narrator. If I missed any of your favorites in the list, let us know. Chime in with any good ones that you have listened to in the comments and I will check them out the next time I’m killing two birds with one stone.
