I'm always wishing I had more time to read books. Usually by the time I pick up a book at night before bed, I'm ready to crash out, so it just doesn't happen. I've also been spending a lot of time in my car since my commute is much longer now--it gets old listening to the same music on the radio all the time and the news channels can be interesting, but only for so long.

So, I decided to try audio books. is part of Amazon and it allows you to pay a monthly subscription where you receive credits and you can download books with those credits. They have a free trial, so I thought I would give it a try. I have to listen on my phone, and not through the radio, but that's no big deal for me since the speaker on my phone is fine.

It was tough to decide which book I should listen to first. I looked through some of the best sellers and I just wasn't sure. I went back to my friend's trusty blog (thanks, Melissa!) and looked at some of her book reviews. Based on her review and some of the others I read online, I went with this one:

So far it's been good. It's nice to have something to look forward to during my drive. I'll keep you posted on how I liked the whole book--but I'm almost half way through and I'm enjoying it!
