ok... this isn't my picture, but would love to have a special place to read besides the couch or bed. Where do u read? if u have a pic, feel free to tag me! i'd love to see them!

jb72 I normally read in bed. It‘s the most comfortable place for me. And relaxing. 3d
Sweetkokoro My bed is where I do most of my reading. Sometimes I move to the couch but my bed is most comfortable. 3d
Conservio Outside. 3d

AkashaVampie @jb72 @Sweetkokoro I read in bed mostly becuz I can only really read at night due to my kids. But most of the time I read a page and fall asleep becuz I'm in bed. Haha. I just wish I had a nice, comfortable, and pretty place to look at that I could read in. Maybe even get my kids to read there too. 2d
AkashaVampie @Conservio I dont think I've ever read outside. Well technically I have. When I would wait to pick my son up from school, I'd read in the car. 2d
Johanna414 We enclosed a porch on the back of our house and turned it into a sun room- I posted a picture awhile back so I‘ll tag you in that. I love it! 2d
AkashaVampie @Johanna414 that's awesome. I will check it out! Thank u 2d

Hello. Welcome to my mind when it comes to the color red. Check out my picks for the color red for the color me pretty challenge. Sorry i was so late on this one. I have been feeling really crappy the past couple of days. What you see in this picture is Red Riding Hood the movie, Dark Lover by J.R. Ward, and Clifford The Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell. You can tell that i am a kid at heart with this one. Enjoy! #red #colormepretty @Sweetkokoro

Here is my pick for orange and black for the color me pretty challenge. The kid in me went right to Tony the tiger when i hear today's color. And for book wise, i thought of Orange Is The New Black. I haven't read it, but have seen a few episodes. I loved this quote when i saw it searching for the image of the book. Hope you enjoy. #OrangeAndBlack. #colormepretty @Sweetkokoro

Well going to try my first audiobook ever. Wish me luck!!! Says to self *Please Please really like it!* haha

BooknerdsLife Awww good luck and hope you‘ll enjoy it 💜 1w
AkashaVampie @BooknerdsLife thank u hun! I listened to a chapter so far. Had to do a bathroom break and now my stomach isn't feeling so good. So I think I'll call it quits for tonight but will pick it back up tomorrow night where I left off. It's not bad... the narrator is so so. But it's my first audiobook so I'm pushing through it. Not gunna give in. 1w
BooknerdsLife @AkashaVampie Awww Rest up & hope you feel better soon 🙏🏼💕 Ah! I‘m not good with audio book so Im very picky & a good narrator is a must for me! 🙈Otherwise it just ruins the book for me! But good on you for sticking with it Hope it gets better 👍🏼 1w

Esmerelda1rm The trick is finding narrators you like to listen to. I have favorite narrators that I will always listen to no matter what the book is. Then I have ones that I know will get on my nerves regardless of what the book is. 1w
AkashaVampie @BooknerdsLife thank u sweetie. I will try. Just my time of the month and it really kills me. 1w

Sunraven I usually don‘t bother resisting — people get used to it and then you get to be that person who always reads in public. 😁

Related: A friend once summoned me to be moral support for her at a party and explicitly told me I could sit on the porch and read the whole time. People were rather disturbed and kept coming and asking me what was wrong. 😆

Who listens to audiobooks here? I might be trying it with weekend. Just wanted to know your opinions on it. I think I'm going to be using audible.

ElizaMarie Your local library probably works with apps like Libby and RBdigital, where you can download/check out a book for free. I‘d go that route first. I initially didn‘t like audio books but then retried them (a couple years later) and like them now (if the narrator is palatable) 1w
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie yeah I'm worried that I may not like who is narrating them. My main goal I'm trying to do is get through books quicker. I thought if I try this maybe I could get a few books done in a month, not just one. 1w
MusicallyMorgan I love audiobooks (Cinder is one of my favorites to listen to, and I‘ve heard Daisy Jones and the Six is great too) but if I don‘t immediately like the narrator, I probably won‘t listen to it. Check out Libby through your library, it‘s free and awesome! 1w
See All 25 Comments
tessavi I love audiobooks, but narrator and story can make or break it. I'd suggest starting with something not too long 🙂 1w
AkashaVampie @tessavi yeah right now I'm trying to reread as many books as I can becuz of a crappy memory so that I can finish up series that I need to. 1w
ElizaMarie @MusicallyMorgan I‘m gonna start the second one Scarlet (I believe) soon. I did like the narration of Cinder. 1w
AkashaVampie @MusicallyMorgan thanks hun. I will check it out 1w
AkashaVampie I just found a free one on Google play. I'm gunna try that first and see if I can get into it. 1w
wanderinglynn I use Libby. Like @ElizaMarie I initially didn‘t like audiobooks either. It too a cross-country road trip for me to appreciate them. I still prefer a physical book, but it‘s great for trips and when I walk. And I do find the narrator makes a difference. That being said, I‘ve only bailed on 1 audiobook because of the narrator. 1w
AkashaVampie @wanderinglynn good to know that Libby is good. I will definitely check it out. I'm looking into getting a exercise bike or something so at night when I can listen to them, I can bike as well instead of just sitting on my big butt. Haha 1w
Sweetkokoro I started listening to audio books early this year. The narrator is what makes or breaks an audio book for me. The more engaging a narrator is the easier it is for me to be interested. I have bailed on a few due to just terrible narration. I usually listen to them when i am doing house work as it makes the process go faster haha. (edited) 1w
Well-ReadNeck I love them, but am very picky about narration. I use audible and get things from the library on OverDrive 1w
Samplergal I‘ve grown to enjoy many, not all. I find the lighter books are fine but for really dense books , I really want to written word in front of me. Narrators make all the difference. If you love Bruce Springsteen start with Bruce narrates. 1w
AkashaVampie @Sweetkokoro @Well-ReadNeck @Samplergal thanks. So it seems like it's just hit or miss when it comes to audio books. This will be fun... haha 1w
Honeybeegirl I‘ve been enjoying audio books in my busy life, I can ‘read‘ and go to the gym at the same time! I also listen while I am driving also! It‘s great! Obviously real books can be ideal, but it helps when you‘re busy... or can‘t read during a long car ride! 1w
Birdsong28 I use audiobooks primarily for when I walk anywhere but especially to work. It has made read more as I am using time that I can't read a physical copy/ebook. I have found it very good in getting more books read. I use Audible but only when I get the months cheaper (half price) but you get to keep the books when you cancel your membership and love the daily deals.I have read series that if I read them 'physically' I wouldn't have stuck with them. 1w
Lindsbooklover93 I love audiobooks I use them all the time. They help me get more books done when I'm busy. 1w
AkashaVampie @Birdsong28 @Lindsbooklover93 yeah like i said that's my main goal is to get more books done. i really hope i like it. 1w
AkashaVampie @Birdsong28 😍 😍 i love Kevin Hart!! 1w
toofondofbooks I listen to more audiobooks now than I read physical books. I love that I can multitask while reading. I use audible, hoopla and scribd 1w
AkashaVampie @toofondofbooks awesome sweetie! 1w
CouronneDhiver I love audiobooks... mostly using Overdrive/Libby with my local library 1w
Lindsbooklover93 @AkashaVampie The newer books have very good audiobooks these days. Older books don't have the best audio. I love I can get far in a book awhile I'm cleaning or driving. Audiobooks help me so much 5d

Here is my pick for analogous for the color me pretty challenge. I will say i had a little bit of an issue with this one because i didn't know what it was. So i looked it up and it has to do with the color wheel. That made my mind go to coloring books and just colors in general. Hope you like this! #analogous #colormepretty @Sweetkokoro

I'm shitty at planning things out. Since I'm challenging myself to read more, I thought I would plan out my month for reading and watching TV shows that I need to get caught up on. My calculations is to read 4 books (42 pages a day) and 4 shows (1 episode a day). Not too bad but worried about the reading everyday!
