I like being read to when I have something else to do that can't be done
while reading (like sewing or folding laundry or other visual activities).
Otherwise it just takes too long.  Or while driving long distances; books on
tape are ideal for this.  Both my parents and Jacob's live about 10-11 hours
away from us (in opposite directions, unfortunately) and I like to have
cassettes so I can do cross-stitch and "read" a book at the same time.

What exactly does that mean, finish too fast?  Not understand the book?  The
experience ends too soon?  Certainly not that there's nothing left to read
afterward, right?  :)
