Listening to audio or eBooks is a great way to save time and money! How? When you listen to a book, you are able to make better use of your time, rest your eyes, and reduce your chances of incurring library fines!
Many libraries offer digital copies of books through their library lending systems, but if your library does not offer such a service, or if for some reason you are not able to get a library card, there are some other options for you.

Audiobooks vs. Ebooks Which do You Prefer?

Since having a concussion and needing to cut down on screen time to rest my brain. I have started having my computer read to me. I listen to audiobooks, and also listen to eBooks. Listening to audiobooks is definitely better than listening to my computer read to me, because the computer sometimes reads homographs incorrectly- for example, the word lead- might be read leed or led.

Annies Fiction Clubs offer a variety of fiction genres aimed at crafty people. The fiction clubs include Amish Romance, Cozy Mystery, and something quite unique-Stitch Along Mysteries! Each club is supposed to be available in hardcover, e-book, or audio format, but I couldn't find audio club listed as a choice on their website.! Every 4-6 weeks you can expect your new book to arrive: hardcover will be shipped to your door, and e-books and audiobooks are delivered via email. Simply follow the download instructions in the email, and you’ll have instant access to your next mystery. Please note that hardcover books are currently only shipped to Canada and the United States. Use code SHARE50 at this link to save 50% off your first book in the  Annies Fiction Club.
