Great Places to Enjoy An Audio Book

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone seems to be busy and chasing after time that they never have a chance to sit down and literally read a book. The technology has done great wonders by providing audio books.

Now you don't have to find the time to read a book after work.

Now you can have the books reading to you while you are on your way to work, when you fetch your kids to school. You can now enjoy someone reading the book to you. Isn't that amazing?

With audio books, we also get to enjoy unique advantages of doing other things that take up our hands, but not our minds. We can now do other things like household chores, exercise, etc while still having the book read to us.

More people are embracing the wonders of audio books and are buying their favorite books in audio book version.

If you are considering buying an audio book, below are 6 of the great places you can enjoy an audio book:

1--In bed - There are certain days when we just don't want to do anything but lie down in bed thinking of certain issues. Or we could just want to lie down in the dark until we fall asleep.

This is a great time to listen to an audio book. You wouldn't have to bother with putting on the lights, holding the book, flipping through the pages or the stress of reading the book itself.

With an audio book, the entire book will be read to you while you stay comfortable in bed - without flipping any pages, holding the book or putting on the lights.

2--In the kitchen while doing household chores such as washing the dishes or cooking. For some people it can be very boring being in the kitchen, especially washing the dishes or other such chores.

This is a great time to enjoy an audio book because your hands are busy but your mind is free.

Instead of feeding your mind with negative thoughts during this time, an audio book would be a wonderful alternative.

3--In the garden while gardening - You can also listen to audio books while gardening. The audio book can make the gardening fun because you would be concentrating on the beauty of the audio book and not on the difficulty of gardening.

4--While exercising such as jogging - Exercising such as jogging leaves your mind open but your hands, legs and even your entire body busy. This is a great time to enjoy an audio book.

Most people perform exercises for many minutes or even hours while their minds do nothing. But listening to an audio book during this time ensures you don't waste those times that you exercise.

Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone - exercising your body and mind at the same time!

5--On the road commuting - This could either be in your personal car or a commercial bus or train ride to work. You see, many people lose a great deal of time doing nothing while commuting to and from their jobs.

Why not use that time to listen to an audio book, especially one that develops your mind and/or improves your professional and business skills?

For example, listening to an audio book that improves your skills daily can do a lot of good to your career, instead of listening to a musical song which wouldn't help you much in the area of skill acquisition.

6--In the air while traveling - You wouldn't believe it, but there are many people who spend more time in the air than on road. There are professional assignments that involve traveling from one state to the other, or even from one country to the other.

If you are in such a situation, consider the enormous benefits you would get listening to audio books, especially those that can improve your professional skills.

Yes, there are many audio book courses made specifically for professionals to improve their skills in many areas of their professions.

Not only that, you can also find books on health, beauty, sex & relationships
sports, travel, hobbies, religion & spiritual books and new york's #1 best selling books.
