Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles? New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself and your general listening experience.
I’ve been listening to audiobooks for about 5 years now, and they just keep getting better. They also seem to get ever more popular, which makes me really happy, because it means that other people know the joy of audiobooks now. I’ve listened to about 54 audiobooks since last year’s Audiobook Week, and here are my five favorite, in the order I listened to them (images link to the reviews):
For the first time this year I’ve done a ton of listening while doing yard work. When I started listening to audiobooks we were in a condo, so there was no yard work to be done, and when we moved into our house last summer I was pregnant with twins, so I was not so much with the yard work. This summer, though, I waged war on the dandelions in my yard and about two weeks of my life were given up to yard work, which meant I got through LOTS of audiobooks.
I also recently got a fitbit (a fancy schmancy pedometer).
The thrill of being able to compete against myself and others to get steps in has me taking lots of walks, and when I’m by myself or just with the babies I always, always, always have my audiobook going, which means more listening time lately.
So that’s my audiobook year, how was yours?
