Audio Book Ap, Audible | www.lovetheeveryday.comThis is not a sponsored post, but it does contain affiliate links. If you click on the links and decide to order something or sign up, I do get credit for it…… but that is not the point of this post. The point is, I cannot believe that my book obsessed self is just learning about this Audible Ap.

I am a total book addict. I have boxes of unpacked books in my garage. I have some stored in my mother’s home still. I have two large bookshelves full of books in my home, and several in my classroom. I even have unpacked boxes of books in my class, waiting to be properly recorded and labeled and stuck with a library card….I’m obsessed. I suppose I could be addicted to worse things.

I have a kindle, which I rarely use, because I am much happier with a real book in my hand with pages to turn.

There is one exception. I really, really, really love books on tape. I drove across the country this summer, just me and my dog, listening to several novels as I drove. For me, it was blissful. I didn’t even realize I was spending hours and hours in the car because I got to check so many things off my reading list as I went.

One of my favorite books of the summer was John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars

Buy The Fault in Our Stars by John Green on Amazon

(The movie is not that awesome.) I loved the sassy, cynicism of the narrator. I would not recommend this novel while you are driving however, as it will most definitely make you cry!

I also like to listen to a good book while soaking in a deep, bubble bath. This is true relaxation to me. Seriously, pour me some wine and let me sink to my ears in happy sudsy literary wonderful-ness.

So, I just discovered the Audible Ap. WHY HAS NO ONE EVER TOLD ME ABOUT THIS?  You can immediately download audio books to your phone or your tablet or kindle or whatever, to listen at your leisure. You start with some FREE books, and then can either pay a monthly fee or buy just what you want to listen to. This is amazing. There are even regular opportunities to earn more free books. FREE. I’m super excited about this. I also like that you can cancel anytime and your books are yours to keep, even if you cancel. I’m going to sign up for the free monthly trial now, and see what its like. I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it.

Aside from all of that, I love to be able to use audio books for my struggling readers in my classroom. There is something about having someone read to you that is so relaxing and inspiring. Even my most reluctant readers will get excited when I say I’m going to read aloud. This ap allows me the opportunity to download the books I want them to listen to, and then then can catch up on readings that they may have missed while they were absent. I love that. Especially because I can get some of the books for free. What teacher doesn’t love free?!
