Sunday Funday: OverDrive AudioBooks
We have had a great Sunday so far! After our usual Mass and grocery shopping, we headed to the pool. It was our first swim this year. The kids were thrilled. I asked my husband to take a picture of my son eating snacks poolside, but by the time he got his phone out the moment was gone. You have to move faster than that when dealing with two-year-olds!
Somehow we got both kids to nap. It doesn’t happen nearly often enough! I’m working away while enjoying my latest book. As mentioned in the title, this Sunday Funday is about my love for audio books.
Since having kids, I’ve found it difficult to find time to read. For years, I used Paperback Swap to get audio books on CD. I tried Audible after my sister got me a three month subscription for Christmas.
Then I discovered that I could get audio books from the local public library. I don’t need to worry about returning the books. When the time is up they just disappear. Using the OverDrive App, I can listen on my phone. In the car it links up through the Bluetooth to the sound system.
Audiobooks have been the answer to my problems. It doesn’t matter how late I am, the drive to work is still the same length. I still have time to listen to my book. It makes any day better!
(As an aside, I have also used the same app in my classroom!)
