Reading is a great way to spend your spare time if you don’t want to sit in front of a glaring screen. The problem is that few people have enough time to spend it reading. After working all day you may not feel like reading. Fortunately there is a solution, this is to listen to audible audio books. Audio books may seem old fashioned, but they are a great way to expand your mind with interesting literature without turning a page.
Listen in the Car
The advantage of being able to put audible audio books onto your iPad or iPhone makes it possible for you to take them anywhere with you. This means that you can make otherwise wasted time in your day fully occupied. While you are driving for example you could put an audio book on. This is no more distracting than music and is a great way to spend a car journey, however long it is.
Listening on the Train
If you take the train, subway, taxi or bus to work then you could also use this time to listen to your audio books. Just make sure you remember to take a pair of headphones with you, everyone else in the train carriage might not be as keen to listen to the same story as you.
Listening while Exercising
Most people like to listen to music while they are exercising for motivation. If you’re looking for something more inspiring then consider an audio book. You could listen to virtually any book while you are working out. This will not only motivate you but also keep you interested.
Suitable for All
Everyone will be able to sit down and listen to audible audio books in peace, even if you aren’t a book worm. This means that even if you don’t like reading you can still enjoy the story. You might think that watching a film is the same as the book, but it’s not. Hollywood makes all sorts of changes to the story to make it more commercial. You can get the original unedited story without needing to read a word. It’s also much more relaxing to listen to an audiobook than watch a movie on TV.
No Need for Bookmarks
Books are one of the most important inventions in history, nothing else has changed life in quite the same way. The only problem with books is that you will have to finish reading at the end of a page and use a bookmark to keep your place. It’s very easy to forget where you got up to and this causes a major problem. With audio books though you won’t have this issue. Simply pause the book where you get up to and then you can resume it whenever you are free. This also means you can fill any length of time with your book, even if you only have a spare five minutes.
Lots to Choose from
There are loads of different audio books to choose from, so everyone will be able to find something that is of interest to them. Whether you are interested in listening to some great audio books like “The Millionaire Next Door”, and “Secrets of A Millionaire Mindset“, “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” and something like “How to Win Friends and Influence People” some of my favorite.
