Audio Book Appreciation Month
If listening to audio books makes you an old lady then that confirms that I am indeed an old lady. In the fall of 2010 I signed up for a credit a month plan with Audible.com ( of the Amazon empire) and I have been pleased with it. When I began I listened to books through my iPod with ear-buds while riding in the car or on the tread mill at the gym. Once I purchased an iPhone I found that listening via the Audible app was even more convenient. Now I often have a book going while I cook, especially if my local NPR station does not have an appealing program airing.
I especially like listening to memoirs read by the author. I am currently in the midst of Diane Keaton’s Then Again. Other memoirs I have enjoyed from Audible include Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Infidel, Ann Patchett’s This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage, and Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle.
