    I have decided that I am absolutely going to get into audiobooks.

    Michael, I started listening to audiobooks when I was still teaching and had a 35 minute commute (in the Midwest, that’s long). I still listen to audiobooks in the car, but my travels now are less than 5 miles but I still listen to audiobooks in the car. No matter how short the trip, I am listening to an audiobook. Well, unless my husband has MY car.

    I also jumped on the audio book bandwagon last week. I knew I was never going to be able to finish my book club selection for Monday evening (I was a little less than half way through), so I decided to check out audio books dot com. It was great! I had a long drive for work back and forth to New Hampshire on Friday, so I downloaded the book and I was able to listen to it through Bluetooth audio in my car. I finished the book and it made the drive go back relatively fast. It was fantastic!
