Let’s enjoy and learn through audio books
Reading is essential for success. It is great for self-improvement, connecting your brain, gaining experience from other people, improving understanding and boosting imagination & creativity. I love reading and get books either from the library or read them on my Kindle. Today I am recommending some inspirational books. Our goal should be to complete two books every month. Let’s start reading.
Why Audio Books?
I love audio books and there are many reasons why:
- No pressure on eyes.
- Can easily listen to audio books while completing other tasks/chores.
- There are so many great books available. I feel audiobooks is one way, we can complete a lot of books in our busy schedules today. If we wait to read each book, it’ll take us a long time and we may miss out on a lot of good books.
Great ideas for listening to audio books
- While doing boring house chores like tidying up, cleaning, cooking etc.
- Using earphones to listen to audio books while traveling.
- While working in office/home on tasks that don’t require too much mental thinking.
