Both of my jobs after graduation have involved quite a bit of travel. After a while just listening to music during my commute gets boring. The mind needs to be fed, just as the body does. I’m sure many of you have experienced this even during your daily commute to and from work.
I love books on tape. I can be entertained, learn, and feel productive during these empty spaces of the day. I didn’t realize how much time I was spending just traveling until I started listening to these books. I was finishing an average of one book per week. Luckily my local libraries carry books on tape so I was saving money on that front. Yay taxes(not sarcastic)! If you’re interested in doing the same thing, sign up for a library card and an Overdrive account then download the Overdrive application onto your computer. Follow the instructions, then you’ll then be able to download the books onto your phone and listen to the digital file instead of an actual tape or CD. There’s quite a few ebooks that you can download to your Kindle app as well. I think the last time I actually visited the library was when I went to sign up for my card. In any case, here’s my list of books that I have recently read and recommend reading. I chose them based on what was available, what I’ve heard is good, and what I cross-referenced with Amazon ratings. Enjoy!
