Recently, I outed myself as a massive nerd and it wasn’t on purpose. When playing with my nephew, someone asked what Harry Potter says when he waves his wand. Of course, I said the nerdiest thing ever and I’m not a fan of Harry Potter, I just read the books when I was younger. If books were available, I read them!
As I became an adult, getting busier and busier, being able to listen to books while I do other things has been my fav aspect of being an audible subscriber.
As a huge fan of self-care and self-improvement, my favourite things to listen to are some of the exclusive audible podcasts or comedies while I paint and make a mess in my art journal. It’s such a meditative time for me and if you have trouble sleeping, they also have the audiobooks for that.
Audible has an unmatched audiobook library and being able to get chores done or just enjoy myself when digesting a thriller or true crime is one of my favourite past times.
