Like most I enjoy reading but there is not enough time in the day. A few months ago I decided to try the free trial of audible because I was getting bored of the podcasts I was listening to while walking my dogs.
Audible is a platform where you can listen to audio books.
I was just going to listen to the free month and be done with it, but then I forgot to cancel my subscription and got charged for the next month. Which was quite reasonably priced. So I figured “ok one more month”. However, after that I was hooked. I realized that I could capitalize on my dog walking time and ‘read’ the books that I didn’t have time to get to .
Now, not every book is a great listen, just like not every book is a great read. I did a yoga training last month and downloaded the audio book of one of the required readings. The content was great but the narrator was boring.
The nice thing is that you are able to listen to a sample of the book before you buy it, which I have started doing. Just this past weekend I was looking for a new audio book and decided to pass on one because of the narrator (it will need to be read not listened to).
Overall I would say if you can afford the $15 a month it is totally worth it (no I don’t get any royalties from saying that).
