You know that I do most of my reading with my ears instead of my eyes. I love to listen to audiobooks while I am sewing, quilting, doing laundry and anything that doesn't require any math or analytical skills.
What I don't like is the process of selecting books, downloading books and loading my MP3 player. Instead of loading books one at a time I know do a bulk process that I think saves me a lot of time in the long run.
As I think of books that I want to read or hear about good books I put them on my Audible wish list. When I need new books I go into Audible and purchase everything on my wish list (using my membership credits). Occasionally I buy books during one of their sales but, as you would expect, the choices in the sales aren't great.
Then I set aside a few hours to download enough books to fill my 4GB MP3 player. Monday was the day.
I found a wide variety of books to listen too including a couple of biographies, some new books in series that I like and a lot of random mysteries and novels.
I am always pleased with myself when I can get as many books as possible loaded and I outdid myself this time with only 16.5 MB left. Now I am good for reading for a few months with 13 new books. One of them, Truman, is a huge book in 7 parts.
Once I start listening I generally go through the list alphabetically because that's how they are listed in my player. It adds a bit of mystery to my reading because I rarely remember which books I selected.
I haven't done a book review in a while because I have not been really happy with the last few books I've read. I hope the new reading list is better.
What's the best book that you have read in the past 6 months? I need to start my next wish list.
