Gifts for Mom- AudioBooks

Press Sample

I love to read.  As a child, I was the kid that went to bed with a flashlight and read under the covers until I got into trouble.  I’ll never forget the time I read over 80 hours for the 600 minute reading club.  True story.  That said, I am finding that recently I have less and less leisure time for reading.  I have a stack of books that I need to read that are my “good for me” books, and the stack of “just for fun” keeps getting pushed further and further down the to-do list.  AudioBooks.com just came to my rescue, though.

While I don’t have the time to devote to sitting and reading a book for pure pleasure, I can easily listen to a book while I do other things.  I am currently listening to I, Saul by Jerry B. Jenkins and James MacDonald.

I Saul Cover AudiobooksThis compelling international thriller transports you from present-day Texas to a dank Roman dungeon in A.D. 67, then down the dusty roads of ancient Israel, Asia, and back to Rome.  The story of a young seminary professor, Augustine Knox, is drawn into a deadly race to save priceless parchments from antiquities thieves and discovers a two- thousand-year old connection with another who faced death for the sake of the truth. I, Saul consists of two riveting adventures in one, transporting you between the stories of Augustine Knox and Saul of Tarsus.

With  6 hours and 17 minutes of play time, I can get plenty done while enjoying this novel that has been on my “fun list” since before it was published!

I love that I can blog, use the elliptical, garden, or anything else I want while listening.  At first, I found it annoying that the narrator doesn’t read as fast as I do, but then I realized that it was helping me to slow my mind down.  Pretty cool, if you ask me.

I’ve made a list of a few of the other books I want to listen to, as well.   Among them are The Ambition by Lee Strobel, Fearless by Eric Blehm, John’s Story: The Last Eyewitness (The Jesus Chronicles) by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, Monster by Frank Peretti, and Predator by Terri Blackstone.

Why not give Mom the gift of AudioBooks this year for Mother’s Day.  Their gifting options are really reasonable, and super easy to redeem!

  1. I’ve never listened to an audio book. Definitely something I need to try out on my next solo long trip.

  2. Audio books are a great gift idea. My hubby actually listens to them in the car all the time!

  3. I love audio books! Not just for me but they are great for bedtime for the kids too! My son and I like to lay around and listen (and I usually fall asleep in there!) haha!

  4. How can you blog AND listen? You must be the queen of multi-tasking. I am still a traditional book kinda girl!

  5. What a great idea for a subscription. This would actually be perfect for my father-in-law for Father’s Day. He loves audiobooks!

  6. We just accidentally downloaded an audible children’s book on the Kindle. I have no idea how I didn’t notice it was audible, but it was such a pleasant surprise. My son and I both loved it!

  7. This is a great gift idea even for myself. I don’t have time to read a ton of books but I can always listen in my car

  8. I love audiobooks. My favorite time to listen to them is in the car and when I go for a walk. It’s such a great way to listen to a story or learn about something new!

  9. I just started to rad more books but I think I would enjoy audio books. Great gift idea!

  10. I never really tried the audio book thing. I probably should though; It seems like I have less and less time for reading these days….this just might be the answer.

  11. My parents swear by audio books! My mom would love these as gifts!

  12. I have been wanting to try audio books. Especially when I am driving or sitting in traffic. I just need to take the first step and do so. I have a birthday coming up and I need to suggest this to my husband.

  13. My mom loves audiobooks. She used to drive a long way to work, and she would listen to books constantly. We now live 45 minutes from one another, so now she listens to them as she travels to see us.

  14. I used to listen to audiobooks when my commute was very long. I loved them! Sometimes the comedy books were hysterical.

  15. I love audio books especially for those long road trips.

  16. Moms can be so busy, running errands, running kids ect. It’s nice to be able to sneak in a new best seller on audio.
