One of my favorite things!

    When Audible asked if I would like to introduce you to their service, I couldn’t be more thrilled. I LOVE Audible. I have always loved to read, but about a year ago I realized I wasn’t finding the time. However, when I looked at my schedule I noticed I have a 30 minute commute and I also spend about that much time walking or running. Enter Audible, my perfect solution.

    Now I have enough time to read. This service truly has been life changing. This year I have used this time to be truly inspired. I have listened to some amazing books that have pushed and challenged me to grow, be happier and make a difference.

    You won’t find me in my car alone without a book! Here are a few of the titles I have enjoyed this year:

    The Carpenter by Joh Gordon
    Go Giver  by Bob Burg
    Make It Happen by Laura Casey
    Happier At Home by Gretchen Rubin
    Presence by Amy Cuddy
    Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker
    The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
    The Year of Yes by Shondra Rhimes
    The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
    The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
    Becoming Steve Jobs by Rick Tetzeil
    The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale

    While I tend to read motivation books, I also queue up plenty of fiction.  I love Adriana Trigiani! You can’t go wrong with anything by her. Janet Evanovich is another author I enjoy!

    It dawned on me that my entire family could benefit from Audible. I am excited to find some titles we all can enjoy. First up, is Peter Pan. Actress Lily Collins brings to life Peter’s magical adventures. I think this classic story is something my whole family can enjoy whether it’s on a family road trip or on our way to the grocery store.

    We have had some amazing family discussions around books we have read. Listening to books will help us continue to be connected with each other and encourage us to be learners. Here are some titles we are looking forward to hearing:

    Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
    Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
    My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George

    The best part of Audible is that there truly is something for everyone! You will find some fabulous narriators such as Emma Thompson, Rosamund Pike, Dan Stevens, James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet and Tim Robbins.

    Try Audible For Free

    I wouldn’t tell you about how fabulous is without offering it to you. You can try Audible for free for one month.

    One more thing?  Do you have a recommendation that my eleven year old daughter and I could listen to together. One that might spur conversations?

      I loved listening to anything by E. Nesbit! Drift House was good on audio too as was Hatchet.
