I should start this post off by telling you how much I hate cleaning. Except I really don't hate it since I love the results but obviously find it no fun. But that's a sidenote and not really the point of this story. The point is that I've been ignoring all of you. Yes, I admit it. Whenever I go through my Google reader I see multiple posts in regards to audiobooks that other readers have listened to and enjoyed. Or posts where they talk about how much they just enjoy audiobooks in general. And I can't count the number of times that it has been suggested that I try an audiobook for myself. That listening to books is fun. I have ignored it all. Because if I am anything, it is stubborn and often late to the game :)
I've decided that's all going to change. Scrubbing my kitchen today got me thinking....and thinking some more about how maybe I should just break down and give audiobooks a go. My house could definitely use a little extra TLC and I might not dread cleaning so much if I had a way to occupy my mind. So I'm going to take the plunge and try my 1st audiobook. Because I'm an audiobook newbie, I've decided the best way to go about this is check an audiobook out from the library. One, because I'm cheap. And two, because I have no idea how this is all going to work out for me. I might not like it...I'm sure there is a reason that I've been hesitating for so long. Or not. Then I started playing around with ideas on audiobooks that I might want to try. I've decided that for me the best way to begin is with some rereads. That way if I can't completely concentrate (hello my lovely children) it won't matter as much since I've already read the book. Here are a few of the books that I'm considering trying:
I've purposely kept this list short because I just don't know yet what to try. That's where you all come in. Audiobook suggestions, please???? What are some AMAZING books that I should try in audio format? And do you have any tips for a newbie like me? I'm hoping that it won't be that hard to put books on my MP3 player but if you have any tips for that share as well. I'm all ears.....quite literally!
Let's all hope that my house becomes sparkling clean from all of this :) Because a girl can dream, right?
