In an audiobook slump- send help and recs!
In an audiobook slump- send help and recs!
I'm now spending a lot of time commuting, so I'm going to give audiobooks another try. I'm not great at taking in info by listening, but I found out the Mercy Thompson series by Briggs is mostly available to me on Overdrive, and I've been wanting to reread those. I'm hoping I'll have more success listening to books this time.
Good morning, Littens!
I need your help. I have no idea what I‘m in the mood to listen to, but I need a new audiobook. I‘d love your suggestions. 🙏🏻
So one of my coworkers is on medical leave for 6 weeks and I‘m taking a lot of projects which means overtime! Hit me with your all time favorite audiobooks!
Has anyone else been having issues with #Libby? I know this could be related to my specific library, but a couple of my holds have been deleted with no notice. I thought maybe a new ISBN for the title had been added, but it is strange that it's happened twice now.
Insomnia again this week. Tonight I used my time to sign up for Libro.fm. I already have a long wishlist, so it seems like a good choice at 3 am. We‘ll see what I think in the morning.
Has anyone tried Chirp?
Hit the Mother Lode on my Library‘s OverDrive audiobooks today. But that‘s a LOT of hours of listening in the next 21 days!!! 😜
I saw this advertised on IG today but am finding it difficult to get info on the service without signing up (potential red flag) Do any of you use this service? Could you tell me about it? Cost? Variety? Ease of use?
I bought myself a new puzzle to work while listening to my audio books. I find I can't just listen, I have to be doing something. I hope to start it this evening.
My answer is... yes AND no.
Yes because I'm putting in the effort of listening and understanding. No because I'm doing something else while listening, which I couldn't do if I were actually reading!
What do you think about it?
Anyone wanting a good bargain on Audible. Current sale, 3 months for 8 bucks a month. Good buy for ANY audiobook they have. Now is a good time to try it if you haven‘t. Jump in, #litsywalkers.
A list of the best audiobooks for your commute. You are commuting when you take your daily walk. Check these out.
Take a look at this list of narrators and their books. An excellent list.
Audiobook suggestions for today.
Attention Litsy Members
I‘d like to start a recommendation thread for #LitsyWalkers for AUDIOBOOKS ONLY.
Whether you‘re a Walker, or a Watcher , we‘d love to hear any audiobook recommendations that you think are great listens. They can be any genre. You can even just name a favorite narrator.
This will make a good reference list for The Walkers.
Thanks in advance for your ideas.
Interesting Op-Ed in NYTimes today:
Is Listening to a Book the Same Thing as Reading It? https://nyti.ms/2zQorZH?smid=nytcore-ios-share
Audible just started a new sale. 24 pages of books on sale, most around 5 bucks. If you purchase 4, you get a coupon for 5 bucks, so you‘re getting 2 bargains in one deal.
I need to whittle down my list a bit !
Just in case someone has been wanting to try Audible, or sign back up. They have a special right now. Great price. Normally 14.95 a month.
Super tired today! I had a rough night last night, and stayed up too late.
I currently trying to decide if I am going to get rid of Scribd. After talking with their support about all of my books becoming unavailabile after two days, I found out that they limit your account after you read a certain amount. But for something that's supposed to be unlimited, it sucks not to have very many interesting things to pick from because I read too much. 🙁
What app do y‘all use to listen to audiobooks? I‘ve recently started listening to them at work but the app through my library only lets me download 4 a month 😩 is Audible worth it or do you have any other suggestions?
I'm sure you all read this last week, but I'd missed it so... https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/jun/21/listen-and-weep-audiobooks-outdo-f...
Work from home
No waterproof speakers
I‘m a book editor so can‘t listen to a book while editing a different book
I‘ll re-add jigsaw puzzles someday when I no longer have cats! 😂
If I could listen to them in the shower, I would! With a 90 minute commute each way on public transportation, I get a lot of listening (and reading) done. I love audiobooks (and podcasts about books).😀
Just got this message from one of our wonderful ladies at the library! I don‘t do audiobooks, but still good to know, and I know a lot of you lovely Littens do!! 👏🏻😊🎧
To the girl at work who made her daughter's class too many brownies....you suck...and these are delicious. Totally unrelated...I decided to sign up for a free trial for #audiobooks today. Just to see if I can do it. I'm not sure if having someone read to me will drive me nuts or not but I'm willing to start #audiowalking to test it out!
Just a reminder that today is the first day to get the 2 free audiobooks from audiobook sync. You‘ll need overdrive for easiest loading. I‘m not sure if I‘ll like all the choices but for free, I‘ll give them a try.
I thought it sounded like they‘d be offering new books each day this week, but apparently the same 3 all week, but hey, they‘re free !
I thought these stats were interesting . Can you imagine one audiobook that is 126 HOURS long ?
And for those HARRY POTTER FANS, can anyone tell my why this book would be the one most listened to ? Is it book 1 ?
Hurry ! I just saw this. 3 free audiobooks starting today. Monday, April 23. ! Grab them quick ! It sounds like they are giving free ones all week. ! You only have a couple hours left to grab today‘s !
Today is Moby Dick, Winnie the Pooh and Emma.
You know you're hooked on audiobooks when you put off your coursework cause you have to read a 30 page article instead of listen to it...
I have only had an Audible subscription for a month, but already thinking about canceling it and getting Scribd instead.
Any Littens have experience with Scribd? Pros, Cons?
For those asking about the free audiobooks in Audible. You can find them in your app under channels, scroll down to the bottom and there is a link to audiobook collections and then they have several different categories. You can‘t download them but only steam them. But there are several great titles. I am in the US on an iPhone so don‘t know if that makes a difference.
Help!! Idk which audibook to pick next.. I found these titles available and they are all in my #tbr pile.. I just don‘t know which one to choose 🤔🤔
