I recently told you all about reading “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine”, whereby I managed to read this marvellous book from start to finish in a few days. I cannot stress enough how much of an anomaly this actually is. I have mountains of beautiful books that I bought with every intention of jumping into as soon as they arrived, only to have them become a permanent ornamental fixture in my home.
However, as I’ve mentioned before I am subscribed to Amazon Audible and this is how I get my literary fix. I have a library full of lovely books that I’ve collected over the last year or so and I tap into them whenever I’m able to, which usually ends up after midnight while i’m lying next to my snoring husband and my little boy is sound asleep in bed.
It’s been a life saver and I don’t say that lightly.
There have been many moments over the last year where I have felt so overwhelmed and exhausted from life that the only thing getting me through those last hours of my day was knowing I was going to have some downtime listening to some of my favourite authors.
Now, I’m a mum so it should be of no surprise that a lot of my book choices are ones written by other mums alike. However, I tend to purchase the audiobook along with the actual hard copy so that if I do get the time to actually physically read the written words then I can. I mean there’s honestly nothing better than holding a book in your hands, do you not agree?
These are just some of the books in my library at the minute:
So if you’re like me and you don’t always have the time to sit down and read a book, but still have the desire to delve into the words of your favourite authors, you should definitely give Amazon Audible a go. You can even get a free trial to see how you like it, and if you’re anything like me you will wonder how you ever got by without it.
