Sometimes life gets a little too busy to sit down and read a book. Whether it’s family, work, or chores, it’s hard to find even just those few precious minutes. I love stories though. They have been a part of me since I was a little girl. Even my dreams have always been filled with plots and suspense. And if I don’t have at least a few moments to enjoy a good story, I can feel a little stressed. So I turned to audiobooks. The wonderful thing about them, is you can keep working, cleaning, driving, and doing whatever it is you need to get done, and still enjoy a good story. Most recently I’ve been listening to A Storm of Swords form the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. I have to say that I’m enjoying all 47 hours of it. The narration is wonderful, and how can a lover of fantasy go wrong with GRRM? If I had to choose a favorite, however, All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai would be it. Elan narrates the story himself, giving it the feeling that every word he says means something to him. It’s obvious from the emotional fervor he lends with his voice that his book isn’t just something he wrote on a whim. There are parts of him in there as well, and you can hear it when you listen.
So for anyone looking to enjoy a story while you’re busy during the holiday season, I highly recommend taking a look at LibroFM. They have a ton of titles, your credits never expire, and the best part is they support our much needed independent booksellers.
