I enjoy reading but I rarely have the time to sit down and read. When I do get the time to read my brain starts remembering all of the other things I need to be doing. It’s a struggle and up until last year I had just given up on reading until I discovered audio books. I checked out a few books on CD for my kids for a long road trip and realized this would be a great way for me to “read” more books.
Now, I don’t know too many people that use CDs anymore but I know most libraries offer books on CD and eAudiobooks. I haven’t always had success with finding current popular eAudiobooks available at my local library which is why I signed up for Audible.
WHY USE AUDIBLE
- Get 1 audiobook credit and 2 Audible Originals each month
- Exclusive audio fitness programs (a $95 value)
- Roll over any unused credits for up to 5 months
- Easy exchanges—swap any audiobook you don’t love
- Listen to your books anywhere with the free app. Even if you switch devices, you’ll never lose your place.
- Cancel anytime and you still get to keep your audiobooks
WHERE I USE AUDIBLE
I listen to audiobooks while I’m folding laundry, doing dishes, cooking dinner, going for a walk, driving around running errands, waiting for Jude’s pianos lessons…. pretty much anywhere. Sometimes I only get to listen for 10 minutes but I love that I can “read” and do other productive things at the same time.
WHAT BOOKS DO I LOVE
I’m glad you asked. Here are a few of my favorites:
I am Malala
*You may notice I like memoirs, especially ones written by women.
Now you don’t have to use Audible to listen to these audio books but in my opinion it’s a much better deal. For example, the audiobook for Girl Wash Your Face is $17.56 or 1 Audible Credit. I’m saving $2.61 plus gaining all the additional features like the 2 Audible Original books and fitness program. (I’ve used the fitness programs and it’s great!)
So, I highly recommend checking out Audible
And above all try listening to audio books. I may be a busy mom but I can still “read” books while I get stuff done.
