    Audible books

    I am listening to Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman on audible. It is great fun, the stories are actually really funny. I have tried to listen to more serious things but really the fun stuff is best. Does anyone else use audible?

    I don't use audible, but I do get audiobooks on CD from the library for my commute. I just finished "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore," which was a very entertaining story, written well. Now listening to Michelle Obama's memoir.

    I get occasional downloadable audiobooks from the library, which I play on Overdrive. The best one so far was Wish You Happy Forever: What China's Orphans Taught Me About Moving Mountains, written and read by Jenny Bowen.

    I get books from my library - they're either on Overdrive or Hoopla. I like historical fiction - (NOT romance).

    I use Audible occasionally. I do buy Louise Hay's books, since I listen to them over and over. I just got total Money Makeover since I couldn't find it on Hoopla for free. Hoopla is similar to Overdrive, you use a library card. Only difference is no wait times!

    I've never used Audible, but sometimes I get books on CD from the library to listen to while making baskets, since it involves sitting still for hours on end.
