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

My husband loves audio books. I actually prefer actual books, though 🙂
Driving is definitely a time for audiobooks! Keep on playing it until you’ve gotten it all.
I love reading books. However, I haven’t tried audio books yet but I want to!
I love audio books because you never have to worry about damaging or losing them! They are so convenient!
How great that you both have a subscription so that you can listen to double the books each month. Sounds like you really have your system down so that you are never without a book for long. I love to read too but unless ti is for work I find that I have less and less time to actually sit and enjoy a book.
I love audiobooks. My first love is reading the written word, but that’s really hard to do on the road… =D That’s where audiobooks come in for me.
My family loves audio books. My husband listens to them in his car to and from work, we use them in our homeschooling.
I would definitely listen to a lot of audiobooks when I”m driving around doing errands! I love the divergent series! I’d love to get that one in audiobook form!
I love to listen to audiobooks while i work!
I love audiobooks, especially when driving. Audible has a fantastic selection.
I can’t seem to find the time these days to read a whole book, yet in the car, doing laundry etc – i can see why this would be so great. I need to look into this more!
I need to download some books for the car! I love the suggestion of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Michael C. Hall is amazing!
I have never listened to an audiobook, but I think I need to start! They sound awesome!
I LOVE audiobooks. I can never find the time to sit down and read but with audiobooks I pop one on at night and listen while I fall asleep.
It would probably work for me if I had one a month. I don’t see myself having more time than that, but I would love to listen to one!
I personally have not listened but my MIL listens to them in the car all the time. She loves them. Says that they keep her mind going while driving so that she stays alert…
I really like Audiobooks. I used to listen to them in the car on long drives.
Ah!!! Four!!! I haven’t read that one yet. I like Audiobooks for road trips.
We have a few road trips coming up and I love listening to audiobooks while we travel!!
I have never actually really listened to audiobooks! I wish I had more time to listen!
I do it while I do almost everything. In the car, on walk, while I do my hair. It keeps me from getting bored.
This is awesome.. I saw this on twitter earlier, so glad you have a great post to tell me all the ins and outs.. great post and going to check out Amazon now.
Wait you can listen to audiobooks on your phone? I didn’t know that! I have tried audiobooks but didn’t like that I had to play them from my computer. If I could listen while I walk, that would be great!
I had no idea that audible had a subscription service!!! I have been considering it for when I am at the gym and its impossible to read while working out.
I haven’t but it seems that a lot of people l really like them. I’m kind of curious about listening to Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
I need to check Audible out! I’m only hearing amazing things.
I just saw this recently! I totally want to try Audio Books! Thanks!
I would love to see if they have some audio books for learning computer related stuff and not just novels. I love to read but I think it would be neat to listen to something educational while I work too!
I love listening to audio books when I am going to bed or driving. Such a convenient way to “read” a book.
We love audiobooks in my house so yeah, this is BIG!!!
I have never tried out Audio Books before, but we have some road trips planned this year with just hubby and me. I think we will give it a try.
