Audiobooks

My last post on being excited about reading seems to not have changed.  I have been even more obsessed about books and reading and trying to figure out what my niche is in my tastes.  I am drawn to many different styles and stories and have yet to figure out what I really love.

What I have grown to have a liking for though are audiobooks.  Considering my lack of time to read books for a long period of time, I was looking at other options.  I really considered Audible because it was a decent price and I liked the idea of getting free audiobooks every month but I have decided to go with Kobo’s subscription service!  I am a big Kobo fan (partially because I am Canadian and well it being a Canadian company, I wanted to support so I’m biased in that sense) and I figured why not continue with them even in audiobooks?  Plus it was cheaper than Audible so that’s always a plus.

So I listen to my book on the way to and from work and it’s definitely making my commute more enjoyable since I drive about 45 minutes each way.  The downfall though?  I go through the book so quickly because of my long commutes.  I’m pretty much almost done my book and my next round of “free” audiobook doesn’t rest for another 3 weeks and I don’t really want to buy an audiobook because they are ridiculously expensive.  So that’s the only thing that sucks about this subscription.  For my next book, I pretty much have to find a book that’s quite long but hopefully good so I don’t regret my choice.  I have a couple of choices lined up so we’ll see when the 26th comes rolling around.

I still try to read when I can though.  I have a lot of books on my Kobo ereader and I made a deal with myself that I want to finish at least another 3 books before the end of the year.  I eventually want to be able to read at least 50 books a year, maybe even 100!  I think it’s a good goal.
