I’ve been on this audiobook kick lately! I don’t know about you, but I find it so difficult to find time to read each day. I read a lot for work but it is so challenging to read for leisure. When I first started to inquire into audiobooks, I almost felt ashamed. Is this really “reading”? I decided not to sign-up.

Then, I received a promotional email from Audible that my first book was FREE! Someone had recommended I read “The 5 Second Rule” by Mel Robbins. You can find the book here:

I decided to sign up for Audible and give it a shot. Much to my surprise, I loved it! The book and the Audible app were both fantastic. Additionally, listening to an audiobook while caring for an infant is so much easier than trying to actually read. Before, I would only play music when I was with my daughter but it was so nice to have the audiobook as an alternative. Needless to say, I finished the book in a few days and quickly signed up for a membership so I could get another book. If you don’t already “audio book” then you are missing out! I highly recommend you at least look into it:

  1. I saw Audible and had to comment! My best friend and has been for many years. It started when I realized that listening to an audio book on a two hour commute to work made the time fly. I found with a good book, you actually can’t wait to get back in the car on your way home to listen. Not sure about listening on your Bose at home. Always wanted to but more convenient for me on the drive.
    To date I have so many books in my library collection I can’t count. Once a member you collect points. After a few weeks you have enough points for a free book. ANY book you want. So I search the data base when I get the chance and put certain books in my wish list and save them to purchase at another time. The expensive books are the best to save. They also email you specials periodically. For example: Buy any book in this section for five dollars or less. You can’t go wrong.
    There is something about listening to a book, especially when it is read by the true author. Ex: Wayne Dyer! I’m his biggest fan, he’s been my therapist for over 25 years. I’ve read and listened to all his books. He is genuine and when you hear him speak, it resonates in your heart and mind. I’ll never ever go back. I do read the occasional book that I’ll pick up if I’m out, (all non-fiction I have to add), but the majority is in my audible library. Also, no need to download them all to your phone. They float high in a cloud somewhere and are there to listen to over and over again whenever you’d like.
    Here’s to you and making friends with Audible!

    1. I totally love Audible! It is such an easy way to get through a book if you don’t have the time to sit down and read. 🙂
