Reading is such a great way to the open the gates to new worlds and explore other cultures, to learn new skills and to master talents. One simple way that I easily integrate continued reading into my routine is with audiobooks. Audiobooks allow me to continue “reading” while I’m on a run, traveling, doing the dishes or driving. Listening while I’m completing other tasks is the perfect and easy way to continue lifelong learning.
My favorite resource for audiobooks is Audible. Audible is an Amazon company that features thousands of amazing books. You can buy them one-by-one or you can sign up for one of their membership plans for discounted books and special promotions. And guess what? You can get two audiobooks from Audible completely for free! All you have to do is sign up for their free 30 day trial. This is a great way to test audiobooks if you’ve never listened to them. You can learn more about getting two audiobooks for free right here.
I’ve been listening to audiobooks for years and am amazed looking back by how many books I’ve been able to enjoy simply by pressing play and listening. With Audible, I’m able to easily get through 1-2 books per month. I love being able to read all the latest as well as the classics and everything in between!
