My Latest Obsession


My normal commute to work is generally between 20-30 minutes one way. I normally listened to my Latin Hits Radio station or to one of the podcasts husband would download for me on my ipod (The Lively Show is still my favorite). I often wished I could listen to an audio book but just couldn't get over the price. I know that you can check them out on Overdrive but I would get frustrated waiting for the latest 'it' book to become available for me to check out. Patience is a virtue that I do not completely hold, so when I came about an ad on Amazon for an Audible membership, I knew it was speaking directly to me. 

By becoming a member of Audible, you get a 30 day free trial with two free audiobooks. After that, you get 1 book each month for $14.95/month. I could totally get behind this since the monthly fee is pretty much the equivalent of purchasing a new book. Plus once you download them to your device, they are yours to keep forever. For. Ev. Er. (Sandlot anyone?) 

Now I may be late to the game on this one, but I am part of it now. Plus I feel like my commute time is no longer wasted brain space. I get out of my car feeling smarter, and honestly, my mood is so much better as well. 

*This is not a paid advertisement. I pay for my monthly membership and wanted to pass on the information to all the book lovers out there.
