A few months ago I stumbled across audio books, Now i love to read an actual book but lets face it when three kids its hard to just sit there and grab a book and really get into it without getting distracted every 15 minutes. So naturally I found audio books to be the perfect thing for me. I find myself listening to them after I drop the girls off at school, when I am cooking dinner or cleaning the kitchen. I have a tiny bluetooth speaker that stays inside of the kitchen and I connect my phone to it. I literally get lost in my books, and I tend to finish them in about 2 weeks. So far I've listened to quite a few.
