I finally purchased my first audio book from Audible. (The service allows you to download load a propriety audio file. But the good news is that there hundreds and hundreds of Audible-compatible devices.) My new audio library
includes, “Your First Listen.” So, for the first time, I clicked and listened to a four minute excerpt from an audio book. It was a good, corny giggle and I forgave them after I realized it was Steve Martin’s Pure Drivel.
At any rate, I am off to explore a new world of audio books. I am always complaining about not having time –for anything. Let’s see if I can squeeze in some time for listening in places like the kitchen or at the grocery store.
Although driving may sound like the most logical place to listen, it rarely takes me more than 10 minutes to travel anywhere via automobile to transport the kids. And, when I am driving, my darling tweenies monopolize the radio. So the car wouldn’t be a good venue. Unless… I guess we could listen to Seekers or 39 Clues . Nah!
