How Audible.com Made Me A Reader…For Good!
On my fortieth birthday I was revisiting my Have, Do, Be list and I added that I wanted to “Be a Reader”. I wanted to move from being someone who had dusty books staring at me on my nightstand and transition into being an active reader that was pursuing daily growth. I am so thankful that Audible came to the rescue!
As a wife, mom of two, someone who works three jobs, volunteers and has plenty of household responsibilities my “spare time” is limited and very precious and after the first year of setting this goal I actually thought it was going to be impossible. But here is the story of how I moved from reading just two books a year to over 30 plus books in a year.
While I would totally rather be marking up margins of books I decided to not let that one obstacle hold me back. I wasn’t willing to stay stagnant in my goal and I wasn’t willing to let my lack of time run the show. I had to make a choice to figure how reading could partner with my full days. I had to use my gap moments wisely and I have loved seeing the fruit of that choice.
Have you ever tried Audible.com? Does it work for you? I would love to know what you are reading or a favorite you have read.
Here are my Top Ten Books I listened to via Audible this year:
