I love to read. Like a lot of bookies, I could read all day and night, if life didn’t get in the way. If you don’t believe me, check out the number of bookcases, full to the brim, sitting in my house. And then there is my Kindle.
But I know some people find reading tedious, or maybe their eyesight is failing so reading has become something they can only do in short stints, or maybe not at all. I’ve got the answer for them. www.audible.com from Amazon now has streaming books. Unlike the CDs you used to buy and stick in the CD player, you can now listen through your computer, phone, e-reader, tablet, or any other device. Some of us old people find this fascinating. The younger ones, not so much.
But so far, I have two books on audible and another one on the way. Secrets of Sandhill Island is now available on audible.com and so is The Apocalypse Sucks. Stones of Sandhill Island is in the production mode. It is just another way to enjoy books. You can even share them with the other people in the car. While the kids are plugged into whatever movie, game or activity in the backseat, Mom and Dad can listen to a book in the front on the way down the road to Grandma’s house. Ah summer vacation!
Check out my books on Audible and all the others that are available. Audio books have created a new line of actor/voice-over opportunities for those so inclined and it makes books available to people who can’t or won’t read. It’s a brave new world out there.
Go enjoy a book.
