This Chicago Weather is Killing My Audiobook Experience

I'm not sure if any of you know how bad this winter has been in Chicago, but let's just say it's been spirit-crushingly cold. I know it's been the same way elsewhere as well.


I have to walk a lot during the day to get to/from work, which I love because it gives me a lot of time to listen to my audiobooks.


But this winter, I can't seem to concentrate on my audiobooks at all while walking in the Chicago cold. All I can think is "Brrrrrrrr, shiver, brrrrrrr, gahhhhhh! Brrrrrrr," and the next thing I know, I haven't been able to concentrate on a good five minutes of audiobook. Then, I have to make the decision on whether it's worth it to take off my gloves in the freezing weather, in order to rewind the book on my phone.


I know, I know, "First World Problems" and all that - but are any other audiobook lovers having this issue during this brutal winter?


(And if you live someplace where it's warm and wonderful all the time, please don't rub it in :P)
