While I was away spending Thanksgiving in wine country, I went to this quaint little market in Napa that had this pop-up book store. It made me think: man, I simply have no time to read books anymore. And let me tell you, I'm a book nerd. The past couple of months have been uber busy for me, which means it's been difficult finding time to sit on a comfy couch and turn the page.
But even though I haven't read an actual book in ages, I'm still outscoring the hubs with word knowledge. He asked me the other day for a word like 'concise' and I said 'brevity' and 'pithy' and it blew his mind. He seriously said, "Jesus, I don't know that word!"
Anyhoo, I decided that even though I was busy, I needed to become a book reader again--and fast. And since I'm all about killing a multitude of birds with as little stones as possible, I knew that Audible would be the best bet to achieve my goal. Audible is a great resource for books for any and every occasion throughout the year. You might as well get a yearlong Audible subscription so you can read audiobooks any time, anywhere. Right now you can even use their gold offer and save 50% off! The gold offer gives you the first three months of your subscription for only $7.49--half the usual price. And there are a ton of other Audible coupon codes and ways to save too. Plus, you can listen to an audio sample of any book on Audible's website while you're browsing.
So I have yet another trip coming up--Mexico in just a few days--and I'll certainly need to download a few audiobooks for the flight and bus ride. This is why Audible is so great for when you're on the go. But it's also perfect for daily commuting too. I've officially become an even bigger Amy Poehler fan since I've been drowning out rush hour traffic with her hilarious and insightful commentary from her book, Yes, Please! Have you read it? I love the section about dealing with being nominated for a Golden Globe--or as she calls it--pudding.
