Around 100,000 years ago, humans evolved the capacity for language. Our brains are hard-wired to process the spoken word. No experience necessary. Barring any impairments, you will absorb and comprehend what others say.
You likely would have begun picking up the basics before your first birthday, and since then, you've gone on to teach yourself how to recognize the different tones, inflections, and sounds that make up words.

There are many people who are hardcore lovers of audiobooks. Others are strict "book only" readers -- many split between print and digital books, too. While the importance of reading has been discussed by countless experts, there's not as much on audiobooks. What are the benefits of reading audiobooks as opposed to traditional books?
We've all had that embarrassing moment where we realize we've been saying that one word wrong... Read More

Trying to find time these days to sit down with a book can be challenging. With life commitments always cropping up, it's hard to find the time. I know I certainly did before I discovered what audiobooks could do for me and my love of reading.
I'd never rushed to get on the audiobook bandwagon. My reasons were kind of vague and nit-picky if I'm being honest. I didn't own... Read More

Yes, dear blog readers it's that time of the month for me again. The time where I lose the ability for rational thought and become enraged with indecision. I'm talking, of course, of the day my audible credits land and it's time to pick some new books. Should I choose only from those books in my wish list, or should I take a gander at what else has dropped since... Read More

Now THIS is huge. I opened my Audible app this morning to see the notification my plan was now Audible Premium Plus - which means I retain all the benefits of my existing account with the ADDED benefits of 11,000 additional titles (more added each week) I can now access free of charge on top! So not just my monthly credit plus the monthly free Audible originals, this includes audiobooks from... Read More

After a long think over the past week, I've decided to make a few changes. It occurred to me that by designing the site the way I did, it would take up more time than I had available to maintain it. So I've cut back on a few services (they're still there, just disabled in case I find more time in the future and they can come back) as well... Read More

So many choices, not enough hours in the day... and not enough credits to get them all! If you're anything like me, your wish list is probably filled with books you want to get around to reading one day. I've recently been trawling through the "coming soon" lists of Audible and found a few more to add to my list.
At the time I'm writing this I've now noticed that... Read More

This is something that's been bugging me more and more recently. I know it's a bit of a rant, so be warned! It just seems like I've been seeing more and more of these half-assed attempts at covers recently and I needed to say something about it.
Also, sorry about the click-bait title, and if you've actually put time and effort into your book cover then obviously I'm not talking... Read More

Recently, I took delivery of my new TaoTronics SoundLiberty 79 Bluetooth Earbuds. These are the first pair of earbuds that I've owned that have been completely wireless. My previous pair, a cheap $9 set while sporting Bluetooth, still had the connecting wire between buds as well as annoying short battery life (around 1 hour or so).
The time had come to treat myself to a new set. I had a few, basic specs... Read More

It's not an understatement to say that Audible, an Amazon company, is the 800-pound gorilla of the audiobook market. They are the dominant force, and the go-to for most everyone when looking at who to subscribe to.
They have plans and deals to suit virtually all budgets, plus a suite of extras to sweeten the deal such as free access to Audible Originals (original content created just for Audible), wellness... Read More
