    yes. (I have bad eyes, so I can only go by earlier reading.)
    I'm sort of in the same boat except I don't deal very well with fiction audiobooks so I now forego them. Works of fiction in their written form just allow you to use your imagination about character particulars in a way that audiobooks for me at least don't seem to.

    Also I assume Shay's prefered form of entertainment is TikTok.
    Respect my lack of authority.

    Question to book/novel enthusiast if your eyesight is a bit bad, do those E-Readers help??, me personally my near vision is going a bit off, i sometimes use the over the counter reading glasses , and really for small writing, yet i can see extremely clear long distances..

    I did try a friends in Florida, but the problem was as soon as i expanded the words to where i was comfortable , one page ended up 4 or the scrolling was a pain in the ass!!!...

    Matthew Rief's "Gold in the Keys" (Florida Keys Adventure #1)

    (A departure from sci/fi for me, a good solid series so far... it's listed on Goodreads, (Kindle, audiobook & paperback) so... for those that can or wish to read.)

    Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World"

    (Again, revisiting a novel I actually read in the 4th grade. Followed by "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert A. Heinlein the 5th grade... perhaps formative years for me and why my life took such a speculative journey. IRDK.)

    Happy Emoji Day!
