8 Reasons Why I Love Audiobooks

This Audible blog post about why I love audiobooks is brought you in collaboration with Audible.ca. Thank you for supporting the brands that support me.  **FREE AUDIOBOOK BELOW**

I would like to consider myself to be someone who will always appreciate reading and learning. I love being able to read about topics or ideas I may have no idea about and dive deep into it. Even if it means reading for the pure entertainment of it and reading books that are considered classics – the act of being able to experience the book is learning all in itself and something I truly enjoy.

The Reasons Why I Love Audiobooks

Thankfully, my bookworm bug can always be satisfied with stories on Audible.ca! Listed below, I have my top 8 reasons why I love audiobooks and I adore everything about Audible. Hopefully these help convince you to love it as much as I do. Not to mention, the app and your first listen are entirely free!

Relax, Max

Need to catch a break today? No problem at all. As you are laying there trying to cool off from all the chaos of everyday life, start playing your favorite book on Audible. You don’t have to be stressed in order to listen (but it does help chill ya out!), because it could just be another lazy Sunday for you! In the wise words of Chandler Bing, “It’s Sunday. I don’t move on Sundays.” Um – same. So while you’re laying there being a Chandler, browse through Audible’s library and pick out the book of the day!

Lots of Books to Choose from with Audible

Speaking of Audible’s library – it is HUGE. You will always have something to read and listen to. I wish I was joking. Sometimes when I’m looking for a new book to enjoy, I find myself overwhelmed with options. I just want to read all the books all the time, ok? Whether you’re in an inspirational, humorous, or learning mood – there is something for you, your dad, and even your dog! Just ask Beau! 😉

Listen Anytime, Anywhere

Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by a long wait time *cough cough Drivers’ Licensing cough cough* that says they will “be right with you” and hours later, you are STILL waiting? Hi, hello. Want to make the doctor’s office or the airplane ride seem a lot quicker? Download Audible now, babe! As long as you have the app and your books downloaded, you can listen to Audible anytime, anywhere! Even 35,000 feet in the air! This is one of the top reasons why I love audiobooks.

Listen At Your Own Speed

Here is another great characteristic about the Audible app – you can listen to the narration at whatever pace you choose! Some of us can process it better if someone is speaking slower or quicker. Depending on your preference, you can adjust accordingly and never have to go back to listen to a sentence due to the speed! Now, if that isn’t utilizing modern technology, I don’t know what is!

Narrating Stories To Life

Reading a book to yourself is great and all, and believe me – I love that quiet time sometimes! However, when someone is reading and narrating the book like a script, it brings the whole story to life! Which is kind of why we love music – verbal communication of lyrics help us feel what the author intended and moves us in ways that are different than just reading off a piece of paper.

Using Echo + Alexa For Hands Free Activities

You don’t just have to use your phone to listen to audiobooks – did ya know that?! Just use your Amazon Echo where you can simply say, “Hey, Alexa – play my audiobook of Girl, Stop Apologizing.” And bam! You can be doing what I usually do when using my Echo and do chores or not be able to use your hands (because they’re deep in a cookie dough mixture)! Audible + Echo = AMAZING!

Helps Me Focus During Exercise

Feel like you don’t have the time to just lay back and listen to an audiobook? No worries at all! This is exactly why Audible is perfect – it can go anywhere with you! Personally, when I’m at the gym and want to not focus on sweating my booty off, I turn on Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis and my worries float away! Do you love audiobooks when exercising, too?

Great Value!

What other devices do you know that have this many positives attached to it?! For every reason listed above (and about 87 others that I could bore you with) Audible is such a valuable entity. Thanks, Amazon! Now I know I’m not the only one out here that loves Audible this much – share with me your favorite reason why you love it so I can get more ideas on how to use it!

Blogger Bella Bucchiotti of xoxoBella.com shares about how Audible is perfect for travel and it fits her on the go lifestyle. Perfect for the book lover!

If you don’t mind me, I’ll be throwing it down in the kitchen today while listening to A Sucky Love Story through Echo! Happy listening and I hope you love audiobooks as much as I do!

    Aren’t audio books the best? I always have one going and listen when I’m in my car, on long walks, and while I’m cooking. Currently, I’m listening to The Overstory.

  5. I haven’t tried audiobooks yet! I enjoy reading, but I could see where listening to a book would be good too e.g. when cooking, walking, etc.

  7. Audiobooks are the BEST. I used to think I didn’t like to listen to books, but once I gave them a real chance and starting trying different genres, speeds, etc. I have started getting through so many more books than I do with just paper and ebooks.
