Morning Meanderings… An Audible time of year
Another wintery morning here.
I was kind of hoping I would wake up and it would all be gone. 😛
I was going to write this morning that this time of year I love to listen to audio books, and while that is true. I realize that I listen to just as much audio now as I do the rest of the year, the only difference is I probably listen to more audio this time of year in the house. In the spring through fall I take it outside with me while I rake, mow the lawn, work in the flower beds, garden, bike, etc…. Now, I listen to it when I get home from work and I am in the kitchen planning dinner, or working on laundry, cleaning, or playing Candy Crush on Facebook. (Yes yes.. I said it… do not judge. 😛 )
I love having audio cds to take in my car as I tend to travel quite a bit year around, but when it comes to audio I can put on my IPOD or phone, I use Audible.com. I love it a the audio books are reasonable, when you first sign up your first one is free then you can choose to get one or two a month, any audio you want!
I think the first year I used Audible I was on the one credit a month plan but by year two I loved audio so much I bumped it up to two. They roll over so you dont lose them. They also have great sales throughout the year like $4.95 sales where you can choose from hundreds of audio books for that price. I stock up!
I decided to talk about audio this morning because I love to encourage people to try it. I was not an audio book listener until about 4 years ago and now I probably double my book count each year because of it. I review a lot of audio here and below listed a few of my favorites if you are looking for good audio. I know many other book loving audio listeners could add to this list:
I could go on and on, but this should get you started…lol
In other crazy awesome news, just this morning I found out I won the KOBO giveaway at Alison’s Book Marks! I am so excited as I know when she received hers she loved it! I am very curious about this and will be sure to update once I have it and am using it. 😀
