I love nothing more than curling up with a good book, preferably for hours, but that is rare in my world at the moment. I can usually only get a snippet during the day if I’m lucky. Reading is mostly done at night before sleeping
But in the past couple of years, I’ve discovered audio books. Previously, I would probably have sneered at the idea of listening to a book. I would probably have told you that books are meant to be read, not listened to. I have changed this blinkered way of thinking, and now love listening to audio books, especially as there are now a huge variety available. I do think there is a place for both ‘paper’ books and audio books to fit into our busy lifestyles
I listen through the library app Borrow Box which I have downloaded onto my phone, enabling me to listen when I’m ‘on the go’. I listen during my 90 minute round trip to and from work, in the gym, in the garden, when doing chores, cooking, and when out walking or bush walking. I try to walk for an hour or two most days so the listening hours quickly add up.
Below, is a list of the audio books that I’ve listened to in 2019. I have linked the books to their page on Goodreads If you would like to know more about a particular book, please click on the link.

Do you listen to audio books. I’d love to hear you recommendations and promise to reply to all comments left
