Everyone you look to nowadays has no time to enjoy the things they loved to do at leisure. With the everyday hustle and bustle of the world, we've all learnt to multi-task or leave some tasks out of our daily routine. While it may not entail a lot for some, many people often end up cutting out their hobbies such as reading books. However, nowadays, many people also like to cram their free time with other tasks which are more important for them. One of the main reasons why Kindle and e-books have been so popular is because they gave books a mobility which has never been available. People could forgo having to tote around the bulk of a heavy book and the extra space was saved up by a sleek device which was capable of storing enough books to fill a mini-library. Pushing the genre of the mobility of e-books that new technology allows, Amazon.com has now introduced Audible Audio Books which give a new spin to the more common cassette books which were famously popular in their day and age. However, once the cassette player became obsolete, these books had faded out of sight. With their re-resurgence Audio books now give you a revamped version of cassette books which can be accessed through your smart phone. With many bestsellers easily available, you can find out with the help of this e-book how you can access Audible Audio Books whether you're an Amazon member or not.

I wish the ADD A BOOK feature would work so I could add these Audible Originals into the database.

How It Ends by Rachel Howzell Hall is 2 hours and 32 minutes long and it's another good one. Perfect for Audio-Cleaning...

4⭐

This is another Audible Original that I listened to this past month.

Brackish Waters by Matt Boren - Performed by Christina Applegate - 4⭐

Christina Applegate turned this mediocre story into something quite entertaining. It was the perfect length to get me through the rest of my Christmas present wrapping.

It's a bummer that the Add Book feature on here doesn't seem to work, either that or it doesn't let you add Audible Originals.

Anyhow...regarding Sleeping Dogs Lie by Samantha Downing

🦮🦮🦮🦮🦮 FIVE DOG STARS!

A surprisingly good short murder mystery story for the dog lovers out there. One that begs the question how far is too far?

My current listen isn‘t in the database (yet). It‘s a memoir about a woman coming to terms with her husband‘s job loss after 17 years of being the family provider. It‘s ok so far. #AudiblePlus #Freebie #NonFictionNovember

I figured out how to calculate the percentage from Audible audiobooks because Audible no longer shows the percentage read when I try to share my audiobook progress on social media. I looked up a time percentage calculator on Google. I calculated the amount of time I‘ve been listening to the audiobook and the amount of time in the audiobook and I get a percentage. After that, I update my reading progress on Goodreads and Storygraph.

Megabooks @Cinfhen that has been on my wishlist for years, so I was happy to see it on sale. I‘m reading the North Korea one now. Interesting perspective as it was written by a former Soviet exchange student. He‘s doing a lot of comparison between life under Stalin and under Kim. It‘s a refreshing change from those who compare NK to western countries. I think comparing Kim Jong-un to Trump is popular but lazy. ⬇️ 4mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen the authoritarianism isn‘t even comparable and one is a dynastic repressive monarch and the other is a legally elected populist. I don‘t like either but I feel the Kim Il-sung/Stalin comparison is a lot more interesting and actually comparable, although the author posits that Stalin is less repressive than Kim. (edited) 4mo
Cinfhen Let‘s #BuddyListen this one since we both just picked it up… 4mo

Megabooks One of the books I thought I was getting tomorrow, I‘m not getting until the 18th. So odd. It‘s the new Gabrielle Union and it releases for purchase tomorrow but 4 days later for libraries. I always think this is such bullshit because it is always celebrities doing this who have other sources of income not writers who don‘t! Hello, she is a movie star married to Duane Wade. 4mo

Hey all you experts! I want to cancel my audible subscription because I can find pretty much everything at my awesome library but I have 2 credits left. I have wandering mind syndrome when it comes to audio so I don‘t listen very often. Are there any books on audio that add something over and above the print version? Some audiobooks I have enjoyed are The Anthropocene Reviewed, Milkman, and The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen. Thank you!

Mitch I don‘t listen to many audible books - but I find if an author reads their own work it adds another layer of subtle meaning. 5mo
Flaneurette @Mitch yes! I agree the John Green and Nguyen I mentioned above were read by the authors and it did enhance the book 5mo
Megabooks I prefer Ottessa Moshfeg‘s books on audio if you have not already read them. My favorite is this one, but they are all good and I do feel like the narration adds something. 5mo
See All 21 Comments
Flaneurette @Megabooks the only one of hers I have not read is Eileen so I will check out the audio thank you! 5mo
Hestapleton I always browse the audible originals! 5mo
Megabooks This one narrated by Dion Graham (fantastic) may be up your alley as well. 5mo
sarahbellum I also have a difficult time following along with audiobooks, but I discovered that I can pay better attention if they are funny and light. Memoirs narrated by their authors have worked the best for me. Bossypants was delightful, Born a Crime is supposed to be fantastic on audio (the print was awesome), Kitchen Confidential was fantastic 5mo
Flaneurette @sarahbellum I forgot to mention my fave audios are by David Sedaris but I have all of them already. I do have Bossypants and Born a Crime too but havent listened to them yet but thank you I agree these kinds of books really work well on audio! 5mo
DGRachel I am going to second Born a Crime. It‘s one of my all-time favorite audiobooks. 5mo
Flaneurette @Megabooks oooh interesting! I did like Graham for the audio of A Heartbreaking Work.. 5mo
Flaneurette @DGRachel I've honestly been sort of saving it for someday(I dont know when) because everyone says its the best and I'm afraid nothing else will live up to it! 5mo
Megabooks If you‘re a Sedaris fan, I‘ll recommend these: 5mo
JamieArc The Themis files trilogy, starting with Sleeping Giants. It is full cast audio and excellent. I read the first in print and it was just okay. I listened to the next two on audio and they were excellent because of the full cast narration. 5mo
JamieArc I‘ve also heard the tagged book is great on audio. They have it on audio but not through my library so I‘m dying to listen to it one day. 5mo
Flaneurette @Megabooks awesome! Funny in Farsi is only available on Audible so bonus! I love Mo Rocca on Wait,Wait Don't Tell Me also! 5mo
DivineDiana This audio includes CIA interviews, political speeches, music and other extras to enhance the experience! Recommend highly! 5mo
Flaneurette @JamieArc Thank you! I had forgotten about the Themis trilogy but I do like full cast. Fantasticland looks like its only Audible or Scribd for the audiobook but it sounds freaky, reminds me a bit of G Saunders Civilwarland In Bad Decline but more violent, interesting! 5mo
Flaneurette @DivineDiana I have been meaning to get to this one, its on my wishlist and my library has 9/281 copies available! Did you find it very depressing? thank you! 5mo
DivineDiana Not at all. Fascinating is the word! I saw an interview with Gladwell and he discussed that he wanted to enhance the audiobook experience, starting with this one. He was successful! 5mo

Because I‘ve been incredibly spoiled by #litsylove and several other Littens, I need help!!! More like audiobook recommendations for Audible. I love mysteries/thrillers/police procedurals, historical fiction and true crime. I want an adventure! Anyone have any great recommendations?!? 😀😎📖💕

Cinfhen And this is a light hearted murder mystery but the characters are so endearing 9mo

tricours @AvidReader25 they have them all the time! I usually use 3 or so credits and get 6 books. If you want to return one of them you have to return both though (in a 2 for 1 sale). 9mo

I just had the strangest customer service experience with audible. I am past my self-service exchanges because I get a lot of audiobooks and some don‘t work out, so I called to return a book and the lady said, “so I‘m adding three credits...” me, “I don‘t want to buy any credits right now.”

The woman started cracking up and said, “no, I‘m giving them to you.”

Me 🤯 what?

So maybe someone else will hit the return jackpot!

I did it. I finally cut the Audible cord. I‘ve had a Libro.fm account now for over a year, and this past month I‘ve been using Libby through my library almost exclusively. The Libby app is so much better than it used to be! A little less money in Bezos‘ non-tax paying pocket is a good thing. 😉

runswithscissors007 I‘m gonna do it! 1y
SamAnne Oh I gotta do this too. My library doesn‘t always have everything I want. 1y
DGRachel @SamAnne my library doesn‘t either, but unless a book is an Audible Exclusive, I can get it through Libro.fm. The Libro.fm subscription costs the same as Audible and it supports my local indie, which makes me happy. ☺️ 1y

On #Audible for members til 21 July.

I am seriously considering this can anyone help with me as to whether it is a good idea?

I asked you for advice about getting a Kindle Paperwhite and it has transformed Kindle reading experience.

TrishB I don‘t have any experience with these. But I love my paperwhite too 👍🏻 2y
kspenmoll I have an echo dot in the kitchen & I use if for music, NPR, etc. also audible is linked to it so I listen to books as well. Easy to synch with phone, bluetooth. . 2y
kelly_anne We have an Alexa Echo Show (great for learning/using step-by-step for new recipes along with pictures!) in our kitchen. My husband loves putting it on and listening to his audiobooks while he cooks (as long as they are appropriate for 6yo ears to hear, too 😂). 2y

It isn‘t often that I am super interested in the daily book deals/offers that Audible emails out, but sometimes I see ones that have been on my TBR for too long that I feel like I can‘t pass up! Today‘s deal was one of those!

My mom recommended this book to me a while back, and as soon as I can get my hands on a physical copy, I‘m diving in!

If you‘ve read it, what‘s your rating/review? Love it? Hate it? So-so?
Drop stars or comments for me!

ErikasMindfulShelf I thought it was great on audio, especially since it has actual recordings of Chika talking. (edited) 2y

Birdsong28 I know you said no autobiography but the tagged book was one of my first and I laughed so much whilst listening to it and a couple of those times were when I was walking whilst listening to it 😏🤭🤦‍♀️ it was so good. Also I heard Daisy Jones and the six is good on audiobook and as it's #Kindledailydeal on Amazon today for 99p you can get the audiobook cheaper!

Audible is allowing the free streaming of certain books as long as schools are closed. It doesn't appear that you can download them using the app for free, so use this site. https://stories.audible.com/

Reign_1982 Audible has kept me sane these last couple of days. Lol 2y

Super pleased and impressed with Audible today, as I‘ve just discovered an entire section of literature and stories that encompass a plethora of aspects and types of people who have experiences of impairment and illness. Having compilations like this advertised is so important to increase awareness and representation!

So, I was gifted a one-month membership to Audible and in order to use it wisely, I want to know what are YOUR favorite audiobook(s) and/or narrators.

As soon as I settle the existing skirmish in the electronics arms race, I will start my membership and need to take full advantage. 😁

audraelizabeth I love andi arndt if you like romance. 2y
Tamra anything narrated by Juliet Stevenson 2y

Graywacke Also, I agree with @Tamra 2y
Itchyfeetreader @Graywacke thanks for sharing your list. Some good ones on here 2y
sprainedbrain I need to get as organized as @Graywacke and create a GR shelf for audio favorites! As it is, I only have a shelf with all of the audios I‘ve finished, but you should be able to see my star ratings: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/13420083-jenni?shelf=audiobooks-finished 2y
sprainedbrain Also, my favorite narrators: Scott Brick (especially The Passage series and Erik Larson‘s books), Simon Vance, Juliet Stevenson, Caroline Lee (especially Kate Morton‘s books), Bahni Turpin, Richard Armitage, Steve West, Jeremy Irons (Brideshead Revisited is so good read by him), Neil Gaiman narrating his own books, and Will Patton, George Guidall, and Frank Muller reading anything Stephen King. 🤩 2y
Billypar I listen almost exclusively to to nonfiction on audio- here are some favorites: H is for Hawk, Brown Girl Dreaming, Stiff, The Fire Next Time, Secondhand Time, and Lit. And there is one fiction favorite: Remains of the Day. 2y
Graywacke @Itchyfeetreader Thanks (of course, I liked them all🙂) 2y
Graywacke @sprainedbrain fun list of books and narrators (I don‘t know most of those narrators). I like George Guidall a lot, too. Scott Brick is maybe an acquired taste. (edited) 2y
Liz_M @Tamra A narrator I've heard praised frequently, thanks for he additional rec! 2y
Liz_M @Graywacke Thanks!!! 💕 I loved the narration for WHALitCastle -- so much so that I immediately got her recording for Oryx and Crake and then had trouble distinguishing the two stories...... 2y
Liz_M @sprainedbrain I can! And spent too much work time browsing. 😁 A special thank you for the narrators list. I know some novels have multiple narrator options and as mentioned by many a good narrator can improve a book and a bad one can ruin it. 2y
Liz_M @Billypar OOOh, H is for Hawk and Secondhand Time are already somewhere on the tbr. 2y
Liz_M @audraelizabeth Thanks for the rec! When I am ready to branch out into romance, I'll keep her in mind, especially since she is from Mpls and will sound quite familiar to me. :) 2y
audraelizabeth Your welcome. 2y
Graywacke @Liz_M Sorry about Bernadette Dunne. She nails Shirley Jackson. The Haunting of Hill House is also quite wonderfully done...but, well, I guess at least that‘s the same author. 2y

Apparently only for US audible members, but I know some #Nonfiction2020 people, and a lot of other audiobook listeners, who can meet this challenge!

Gezemice Oh yes! I can definitely meet this challenge :) Thanks! And have a Happy New Year! 🤗 2y

Hey Audible fans, here's your chance for some easy money.
From now until March 1st, listen to three books that are at least 3 hours long, and you get a $20 audible credit. That won't be much of a challenge for me.

audraelizabeth Seems easy to me. 2y

376 hours...not bad!

Scochrane26 Wow,that‘s a lot! I did audio more this last half of the yr than usual but don‘t think I had that many hours. 2y
Megabooks @Scochrane26 I‘m definitely a heavy listener! I did so even more when I lived alone. 2y

Why is this? 😭

#audible

DaveGreen7777 😢😢😢 2y
Deifio Oh that's just horrible! 😭🤗 2y
ljuliel I don‘t remember exactly, but I think they say it‘s something to do with publishing rights. Some books come out in the UK before here , then just the opposite. We sometimes get some before the UK. It‘s nothing Audible or Amazon have any control over. 2y
starlight97 @ljuliel that makes some sense 🤔 2y

ljuliel I wish there was a way I could buy audible books from here on the UK website. It sounds as if your sale is better than our current one. That‘s ok, though. I have plenty of books yet to listen to. 😊. Hope you guys all find some great bargains. (edited) 2y

Just a thing for all you #UK litsy friend's (I don't know if it works elsewhere)
My library has got this amazing Audio and Ebook lending service called BorrowBox.
I've downloaded it today and loaned The life of pi because I couldn't get on with the book and They both die in the end because I loved the book.
I'm getting more into #audiobooks more. #nevermissabook #reading #listerningisreading #books #readingthelibrary #lbraryloans 📚📚

Emily92Bibliophile @Joseph5 Scribd is a good app. Not free ( in audiobook world you can‘t get a good free app that has recent audio books). Scribd is $8 a month but definitely worth it. Audiobooks and eBooks. Your local library would be a good option for free audiobooks. 2y
Joseph5 @Emily92Bibliophile thanks for your recommendation but in my country we don't have international billing system and that is why I need free sites or apps anyways am delighted for your reply👌👌 2y
Gaylagal2 Finally!! This makes it so much easier 🤙 2y
