I LOVE audio books. I’ve never been a reader, I always fall asleep. Before I started listening to audio books, I had maybe ten books under my belt. Now I’ve read almost 150 books. I can’t believe how much information I deprived myself of. There is so much knowledge and entertainment in an audio book. The best part is that I get everything from libraries (FREE). Anyone who knows me, knows that I wouldn’t have it any other way! To make it even easier, they’re not just CD’s anymore. It is so easy to download an audio file right to my mp3 player. Most libraries give you free access to sites like Recorded Books/NetLibrary and Overdrive.
Being at home with my daughter is a lot of fun but sometimes I feel like I’m in a pretend world where everyone uses limited adjectives and pronouns. I’ll be the first to admit that I get bored and need something to stimulate my mind besides a three year old. Audio books are perfect to use at the park, coloring, laying down with her at nap time, or during a major ear blistering tantrum. Insert earbuds, problem solved! I even use it when I clean the house. Sometimes, I FIND things to clean just so I can listen.
Anyways, I feel like a completely different person and wanted to share my find with everyone who cares to read this. It would be nice to chat about books with anyone who wants to join in on the fun or learn how to do it. If you already read, you can also be my friend on Goodreads.com. It’s a lot of fun.
