When we moved out here to the country, we knew that the trip into State College would inflate our gas budget like a giant balloon. We also knew that we’d be spending lots more time in the car. For all of its costs, we’ve actually come to treasure our time on the road because we’ve fallen in love with audio books. In fact, if money were no issue, we might take trips just for an excuse to listen to the next chapter.
For years, we downloaded free audio books from librivox.org or the library. We enjoyed Raggedy Ann and Kipling’s Just So Stories. But, this past Christmas, I requested a subscription to Audible.com, and my life will never be the same. Each audio book costs about $10, but they are worth every penny. The quality of readers and sound is superior. Some of our favorite stories so far have been Nurse Matilda and A Wrinkle in Time.
The best part is that we’re all listening to the same story, laughing at the same lines, quoting quirky characters, and eagerly expecting the next chapter together.
What do you to enjoy the long trek into town?
Enjoy your home,
