It seems like in this day and age reading a book is the old fashion method of reading. Personally I like to listen to audio books while I paint, cook, sew... you get the picture. Currently listening to Donald E Westlake's "Money for nothing". My favorite of his books are the Dortmunder series read by Michael Kramer.
