    French Classics In Audiobook Made Me Like Housework

    Being an intellectual, I have always found it difficult to do monotonous repetitive housework, even just making an easy weeknight dinner, cleaning up after eating, and making lunch and coffee for the next morning. Music is not enough because I am still "thinking". A couple years...

    Night Night

    I listen to them every night as I go to sleep. Takes my mind off those busy thoughts that would otherwise keep me awake.

    What They Want To Hear On Audio Books

    I've been very busy lately considering one important factor in my next audio book. What type of music I should add to enhance the project. By enhance, I mean set the mood. I've been listening to audio books for the past several months now to see what methods are used when putting...

    I Have a Long Commute

    I love to listen to music in the car, but when I know I will have a longer trip than usual, I'll listen to audiobooks I get from the library.  I only get them if they are unabridged, since I don't want to miss a single thing.

    Nicholas Sparks

    If not for audio books I never would have discovered Nicholas Sparks and he is now one of my favorite writers.  Audiobooks are a great way to pass along the time on a plane or a long trip.

    Finished One Yesterday While Doing Laundry!

    It is so relaxing to do laundry while I'm listening to someone read to me!  I finished Meridith Baxter's book "Untied" yesterday.  I prefer the audiobooks as read by their authors and unabridged.  However, I just began Paul Shaffer's book and don't know if I can listen to his...

    They Work!

    An audio book is so much easier to get through than text. It can wash over me, instead of making me swim. and I can 'read' a lot longer if i'm not using my eyes to do it. I even seem to remember audio books I've read better than traditional ones. I'm a writer myself, and i love...

    It takes a little while to get used to the idea

    that listening to audiobooks really is a form of reading. You don't get the full benefit that a book gives of building vocabulary and seeing words spelled out in a text. You don't learn as much from audiobooks but the experience is massively entertaining. Its like the old...

    Series Fanatic

    Audiobooks are my favorite way to "read" a book. Don't get me wrong, I like flipping the pages still, but audiobooks can be a great way to hear a story while multi-tasking. I love to pop in my earbuds and listen while I clean the house or do chores. Series are my favorite. I...

    I Like Them

    I started listening to them on my daily commute to and from work. I have to take public transit, and all the different *tunes* piping out of all the different headphones on the bus was driving me crazy. I found I couldn't read, because I couldn't focus while all the noise...

    Happy Commuting

    Audiobooks have made me a much more content commuter. About a year ago, I started listening to audiobooks on my way to and from work. I don't do it every day anymore because I realized that I was missing my normal time for internal reflection and thinking through things. But, I...

    Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me That This Is Amazing?

    I'm trying to read as many novels as I possibly can this month so I decided that I would get an audio book for the car rides so that I can double up on reading. Right now, I'm listening to Monster by Frank Peretti. Its pretty good! At the beginning of each chapter they do a ...

    2000 Miles In Stories

    Just recently I drove 1000 miles to a high school reunion. I did the drive to in one sitting and split it up on the way back. I went through three books on CD from booksfree.com--they are not free by the way, but the books made it so incredible bearable and kept me awake. I...
