This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Coupons.com. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. I jumped at the chance to talk to you about Audible. It is my Secret Obsession with Audio Books! #audiobooksforfall
You, my readers know a ton about me from all the posting about my style and my family, but I know that there is something that I don’t normally talk about. I have a reading obsession, but have no time to actually sit down and read anything. Instead of reading in the traditional sense, I read by listening to books from Audible.com. My husband and I both have our own subscription where we get 1 credit per month. That is 12 books per year.
I usually use (steal) his credits to download books that we would both enjoy like the 5 books of Game of Thrones . We listen to them together sometimes, but mostly I blow through them while he is not around. I have the Audible App on my phone and iPad and I use them every single day. Any time that I doing something that does not require my full mental attention, I listen to books.
I listen to Audible Books while I am driving, doing my hair, makeup, folding laundry, cleaning, while I am walking with the stroller, and while I am editing photos or creating graphics for the blog. I feel like I am being more productive by listening to books instead of having TV or music in the background.
I have listened to everything from Classics like Sherlock Holmes and All the Kings Men to the Hunger Games, 50 Shades of Grey, and Divergent.
Most of the narrators are amazing. I am dying to download Breakfast at Tiffany’s Narrated By
