When I sat down at my computer this morning, COFFEE hot and mind ready to rock and roll…. the plan was to work.
Then I remembered that last night I had heard of a book I was interested in listening to …
Then I went to Audible to see if was available…
Then I noticed they were having their February $5 audio sale…
Then time lost all meaning…
On a SUPER CHILLY day in Minnesota… I fell into the online version of a book store and came out of book-coma with 20 new books….
So here is what I picked up for my upcoming vacation -cooking – cleaning – drive time listening…
The Fifth Ave, Story Society by Rachel Hauck (hoping for essence of The Summerhouse)
Mr. Murder by Dean Koontz (I read this forever ago …. feeling nostalgic)
The Half Sister by Sadie Jones ( sounds creepy good)
Troubles In Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand (not sure how I missed this one)
A willing Murder by Jude Devereaux (Jude has been a one-hit-wonder for me, hoping to change that)
Forget You Ethan by Whitney G. (I listened to a snippet, it made me laugh)
The Family Journal by Carolyn Brown (sounds good)
The Things They Carried by Tim Obrien (I’m almost embarrassed that I have not read this yet)
The Sometimes Sisters by Carolyn Brown (sounds about perfect)
The Office: The Untold Story by Andy Greene I love to read about things like this)
The Other Daughter by Lisa Gardner (in a mood for a good mystery)
All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner ( Feel like I am missing out by not having read this)
Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend (heard it is like Harry Potter – purchased first book as well)
MAID by Stephanie Land (I have been planning to read this like Fo-Ev-Ah)
Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins (It sounds fun. I like fun.)
Robin by Dave Itzkoff (no explanation needed. It’s Robin.)
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (oops…just went on Goodreads – I guess I have read this)
Cake by J Bengtsson (not on Good Reads… WHOA!… but it sounds good.)
The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood (I have yet to read Atwood. I know, I know…)
Blue Heaven by CJ Box (sounds good and an author I am just starting to check out)
And now… I must do what I really am supposed to be doing this morning. Have great day all. Have you read/listened to any of these? Do you like audio books?

I have only read All the Bright Places but I have been wanting to read Maid for a while as well. I’m glad you loaded up. I loaded up a while back. I canceled Audible about 2 years ago and I still have 22 books in my queue I haven’t listened to yet. But I don’t listen to audio very much. Once I get all those listened to I’ll renew my subscription and load up again!
I do love it… I was looking at it today and it said I had 450 books from them… I think that was before the 21 (yes I also bought one with a credit lol) I bought today. I listen all the time when I am cooking, cleaning, mowing, gardening and driving 😉 I have a lot of time when I am in the house alone 🙂
That is my kind of retail therapy! I hope you love them all. I see several that I have read or have on my stacks. The Robber Bride is one I read a long time ago; All Fall Down is another. Maid is on my Kindle!
I hope so too Laurel – it was hard not to keep picking. I do love their sales and it loads me up for the start of the year 🙂
Ha Ha ! I can relate to your dilemma. Many a times I started doing one thing and next thing you know I bought way too many books or audios. I’m listening to more audiobooks now too.
Awesome! I love to multi task and listening to an audio acutally allows me to enjoy cooking more.
This kind of thing keeps happening to me! I sit down to do some work and boom… books. It’s like magic isn’t it? I hope you enjoy all your new books! They look great!
Exactly! LOL I am excited to dig in!
LOL!! I have three books in my cart and have been deciding whether or not to buy them all day. I’m going back to audible and checking out right now. Thank you!!
Ha! I am so glad I could help you with that decision 🙂 The beauty if if you dont like them you can return them no questions asked.
Retail/book therapy is the best! Enjoy them all.
It really is. I havent bene in a book store in a long time – nor my library!
Quite a bit of shopping for a day! Good collection though. Loved Robin.
I am exicted about the Robin audio. I was always fascinated by his brilliance – makes me sad to this day.
Yes, it was a really sad end to a brilliant life.
I liked the Higgins!
Hahaha. They were on sale so what is a reader supposed to do?
