I can’t tell you how much I enjoy getting lost in the pages of of book. I love to read! There isn’t a better way to escape than through the words on a page. But life is crazy, hectic, and so so busy right now and sadly I have to admit that sometimes I just can’t find time to sit with a book and read, not if I’m going to get meals on the table, take care of laundry and cleaning, take care of my kids with school, appointments and activities, and manage to find time to sleep. And then I found something called Audible. One of my very dear friends introduced it to me and I’m so glad she did! I wish I had found it sooner. It’s a audiobook service. This is a game changer! Now I can listen while I’m cleaning, working, driving, and exercising. I’m ecstatic because once again I am checking books off of my reading list! My mind is filled with stories and I couldn’t be happier about this. Wahoooo!
This is where Good Reads comes in. Now that I’m experiencing all these wonderful stories, I’d like to share them with any of you who are looking for books to add to your reading list. I’ll post about them every so often and list them here so that when you are looking for something new to read you can find them here. It’s the beginning of our own little book club. I’m excited to see where it goes.
More About Audible
As I mentioned, Audible is an audiobook service. You subscribe to it for $14.95/month. With this subscription you get one credit each month and receive 30% off additional purchases. There is also the option to purchase extra credits and you can swap any audiobooks that you don’t love anytime. You also have the option to purchase books using a credit card rather than use your credits which I do on occasion if a book I am interested in is on sale or just not very expensive. This way I can leave my credits for books that would cost more.
Another reason I love love love audible so much is because it’s great for road trips! One of my kids gets really sick if he reads in the car. I’m one of those crazy mean moms that doesn’t let them pay video games for the duration of the trip and you can imagine how that led to some interesting times! Are we there yet?!?! Now that we have audible our road trips are so much fun! We’ve found several series that our entire family has been exited about. I can’t recommend it more! Seriously give it a try. They are offering a free 30-day free trial with TWO credits. You get to keep your books even if you cancel which is pretty cool! What are you waiting for?
