Do you speed up audiobooks?

The last book I listened to wasn’t that great, but I only had two hours left. For the first time in all my audiobook listening life—thousands of hours—I bumped the speed up to 1.2x.

I’m now listening to Bunker Core (getting ready to write my own Dungeon Core book) and didn’t realize the 1.2x speed was applied there, too.

It’s glorious!

The experience is still great. If anything, the increased speed helps me stay focused on the story (my mind wanders a lot), and it drastically reduces how long it takes to get through a book, which means I can experience more awesome stories.

Who else is doing this?
