There’s nothing better than being lost in a good book.
However, with the busy lives we all lead there’s often little to no time left in the day to curl up and eagerly turn the pages of a new read.
There’s always work to be done, family to be attended to and a house to clean (just call us Cinderella).
But I’m now going to let you in on a delicious little secret. Audiobooks are the key to exploring endless stories and discovering new writers, all while making your way to work, fitting in your daily exercise or waiting for the kids to finish their swimming lessons.
The key to true productivity? Finding the audiobook that seamlessly fits into your activity of choice. It’s all about uncovering the right one for the right moment in your day.
For example. When it comes to exercise you’ll need a book that will get your blood pumping just as much as your bout of cardio. Books littered with twists and turns that will keep you running long after the sun goes down, just so you can find out how they end. You’ll want to get your heart rate up with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn or The Widow by Fiona Barton, which has been touted as this year’s The Girl on the Train.
The daily commute requires another genre altogether. There’s nothing better than passing a long ride to work chatting with friends. But, since you’re not always going to have a faithful friend to go the distance with, I suggest you find your friends in the world of audiobooks. There is a range of memoirs by sassy, smart, hilarious ladies just waiting to get into your ears. During your commute you’ll want to devour Bossypants by Tina Fey, Yes Please by Amy Poehler or Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
And, the best part? These ladies narrate their books themselves, so it’s like they’re sitting right next to you.
