Hey there, how is it going? This Janani from The Shrinkette, taking you through the next few hours of the ‘thon. It’s about 11 PM Central, and we’re 17 hours into this shindig. Hope everyone that’s awake took a few minutes to move and stretch in the last hour!
Let’s talk audiobooks friends. First things first, all books are “real”, yes, including audiobooks. Now that’s out of the way, can we talk about how great they are? They’re great for my long daily commutes to-and-back-from work, keep me company when I’m doing chores around the house, and are especially handy when I’m doing a readathon and need to rest my eyes for a bit.
I particularly enjoy listening to nonfiction on audio, BUT today I’ve got an exciting mix of fiction and nonfiction to choose from: Becoming by Michelle Obama, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable by Michael Bennett, Things You Save In A Fire by Katherine Center, The Dutch House by Ann Patchett, to name a few. Hopefully, I get to listen to at least one of them over the course of the day.
So fellow audiobook readers, let me know in the comments if you’re listening to anything good. Remember, all reading formats are valid, so do whatever works for you. I’ll be around for the next couple hours on here, you can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Litsy doing what I do best—yelling about books.
