As all or most of you know I do a LOT of book reviews. I generally receive these books in either paperback, Mobi or PDF form and occasionally even a hardcover! I am a reader and always have been. I think I will always prefer the paperback edition of any book but since I now have Drusin (which affects my peripheral vision) and I'm getting older-I am finding it easier to read on my Kindle (the free version I have on my computer). With age night blindness is also setting in which means I need a lot of light to read that paperback!! I definitely need a better bedside lamp!! But that is not why I am writing this. I am going to address a comment I see time and time again on my reviews. "I Don't Have Time To Read-But Wish I Did"--I can't tell you how many people write this--and I get it-I totally understand. Not everyone has the time to actually sit down and read a book, even though they may want to. I have a suggestion----
AUDIO BOOKS--so many authors are now offering their books in this form. It used to be that audio books were mostly self help books-but no longer!! So now--when you are vacuuming or exercising, or running on that treadmill or working in your garden you can be listening to your favorite author's book. I personally do not recommend listening when you are driving--it might get too distracting!! Quite a few of the author's who I have reviewed now have audio books. More and more are getting on the band wagon even as I type in all probability.
I have yet to try one mainly because I still have not attached my speakers to my computer!! But with my eyes I will in all likelihood start listening to them and reviewing that way as well. Which reminds me--do you have an elderly friend or relative who loves to read but can no longer do so? Get them set up with audio books and bring a twinkle to their eyes and a smile to their face as they listen to a story and allow their imaginations to soar.
To see if your favorite author or one you really are interested in trying out for the first time has any of their books in audio book form just go to either their web page or to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or to where ever you purchase books and check it out and let your imaginations fly away as you do all those chores that stop you from sitting down and reading. There are also places that I have seen that offer audio books for free-but you will have to research for that!
