For me, books are an inseparable part of my life. Book reading is a habit that I have acquired over a couple of years. With time this love has grown and evolved.
I do understand for some of us taking out time for reading is very difficult because of the busy schedule. In the fast pace of life, audiobooks are like a blessing. We can still immerse ourselves in the magic the books offer in a way, which would be missed otherwise. While exercising, cooking, running, listen at your speed and comfort.
Some audiobooks are so breathtaking and I don’t want my readers to miss out on these life-changing books. So, you can start with Amazon Audible and enjoy the books as you hear them.
