I've been itching to come around and say hello, but there is one thing I cannot do and blog at the same time. I cannot read and blog. My niche should have been book blogging, but then I may not have as many friends.
I get SO much done when I am listening to an audiobook (everything accept blogging), I even go for extra walks around the neighborhood just to keep listening. If it's a really good book, you might be able to clean out your closet - or organize anything really.
It always surprises me that people don't know that they can rent audiobooks from their library. And I don't mean physically going in and checking out CDs. If you are a member of your local library, then you have access to their digital library. You just have to sign up.
I wrote about OverDrive almost two years ago but my post is outdated. It's hard to write something for the second time with the same enthusiasm, so I thought I'd share a comment to my blog friend Janine's post when she wrote about overdrive about six months ago.
After two years of being an OverDrive user, I see that it has really caught on. There is a waiting list for digital materials just as it would be in the physical library. It seems weird but yeah, they only have a few digital copies per library branch I guess. Why only one person at a time can have it, I don't know. It's digital.
Often when I have a big cleaning task ahead of me, I find something to listen to. I am on Chapter 34 of Memoirs of a Geisha. I haven't blogged, I haven't cleaned my fish tank, but I can walk in my closet and I can see under my bed from one side to the other. And what laundry?
I started a group on Goodreads called OverDrive Audiobooks. Similar groups only had a few members so I thought I'd start my own and hope it catches on. I simply want to use it for recommendations.
Feel free to ask me any questions about getting set up with OverDrive. In a nutshell, you'll need an Apple or Android Device to download the OverDrive app and you'll need to have an active account at your local library. Then we can talk.
