June is National Audiobook Month so my timing on this new blog feature is perfect, NTB. I'll post later this month about why, how, and when I listen to audiobooks, but, for now, I will just say that I love audiobooks and cannot imagine my life without them.
When spending my monthly credits, I used to try to maximize hours of listening. This past year, I've shifted to selecting books that I think I'll enjoy the most, even if they're not as long. Thanks to Audible's daily deals and creative sales, I almost never run out of listening material.
Here's how I spent my two monthly audible.com credits for June ...
Easiest selection ever: Elin Hilderbrand's Here's To Us. I've mentioned before that I am an Elin Hilderbrand superfan. Her books are great for listening and a true summertime treat for me. I do own hardcovers of most of her books, and I know from experience that should I wish to, I can eventually get a hardcover of Here's To Us from my library book sale room for a dollar donation.
I'm almost finished listening to Celeste Ng's Everything I Never Told You (enjoying it more than I thought I would) and will start listening to Here's To Us tomorrow.
If I was less impatient, I might have spent my second credit on Emily Giffin's First Comes Love, but I didn't want to wait until 6/28. Instead, I selected Nina Stibbe's Paradise Lodge. I loved her letter collection Love, Nina (add to TBR list stat if you haven't read it) and enjoyed her quirky first novel Man at the Helm. Paradise Lodge is a sequel to Man at the Helm. I'm sure I'll enjoy it, and I always love listening to books written and narrated by Brits.
