Audio Books (April Blog)

One of my passions is to read. But these days juggling a family, chores and work has turned time into a premium commodity. This has led me to using Audible as the means of keeping up with reading while doing chores thus killing the proverbial two birds with one stone.


A couple of years ago, I questioned the value of audio books. Why? Well, listening to an audio book on a device felt like cheating on a real book. I was also skeptical about being able to get into something that an actor narrates. I saw audio books as expensive distractions from the written word. How wrong I was.

When I took out their free trial I was instantly hooked and I haven’t looked back since.

Audible is an Amazon company that produces and sells hundreds of thousands of popular audio books. You can access their website in Japanese or navigate it in English as a tool to improving your skills. I am sure you will be able to find something that caters to your tastes and needs. I highly recommend giving it a go and rediscovering the world of books.
