Today I’m here to tell you about something that has saved my sanity on my 30-40 minute commute to work – Audible!
Audible is a service, now owned by Amazon (my fav!), that provides instant download, digital audiobooks. They have over 150,000 titles in their inventory – the largest amount in the industry! You can buy books for usually under $20 each. Then you can listen to them as many times as you want. There are also daily deals that are under $5. I love Audible because I love to read, but don’t always have time for it. Being a mom and a teacher, I am always trying to find new ways to multitask. One Saturday afternoon, I tackled deep cleaning our kitchen while listening to the entire book of Bossy Pants by Tina Fey (and read by her, too!) on my iPad. It made the task so much more fun! I also painted our old bedroom while listening to One for the Money by Janet Evanovich and painted our old dining room while listening to Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close.
My new school is a 30-40 minute commute for me each day, so Audible has been awesome. I downloaded the app and listen to the books in my car through the Bluetooth. I’ve already listened to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer and started The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene just the other day. What I love the most is that it only takes about a week to finish a book! Now that school has started and my kids will be commuting with me, we’ll be listening to books that they will be interested in, like Charlotte’s Web, Because of Winn Dixie and The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
And when you head over to Coupons.com, you can find an Audible promo code to either try the service free for 30 days or get your first 3 months for $7.49/month!
So what are you waiting for? Go grab the next book on your list and listen away!
