One of the things I become so grateful for nowadays is the time I have. With the time in my hands, I able to finished not just one book but as many as my fingers and toes combined. I could not imagine I will be able to finish a single title. Although I was a frequent buyer of pocket-draining coffee table books and fashion magazines that I eventually let go of, and used to spend hours in some bookstores in my fully sighted years, reading was not in my vocabulary. To justify that, even text books when in college hardly been flipped from cover to cover. Since I have the luxury of time now and words became my friend, I thought of revisiting pages. But how? Now that even my reflection from the mirror does not seem to exist.
The solution, Audible. one hundred thousand plus titles of books ranging from fictions to memoirs, classics to best sellers and everything in between are narrated in high quality voices, ready to be listened to on the go or while folding laundry. Isn’t it great! Amazingly, in just one year I am on my 22nd book.
