     Do you have to get debris and aquatic critters out of the pool because you have hoards of guests coming to visit for the summer?

Need to get the knee high grass cut and clear the poison ivy away from the yard?

Convince the mosquitoes not carry off your guests?

Have to give the old home a good cleaning?

And….. all you want do is to read a good book?

 —Imagine me talking in a cheesy infomercial voice.—  

Well, have I got the solution for you.

Audio books.

Yes that’s right. You heard me-

Audio Books.

For busy people who love to read.

You can listen on your phone, E-reader, or laptop.

—End cheesy voice over—

 I’m here to tell ya listening to books will make the drudgery of cleaning closets, using the shop vac to suck the crumbs from the oven, and scrubbing those toilets a thing of the past. You’ll be so pleased to listen you’ll wish there was more work to do. Ehh. That last statement might be pushing it.

I started listening because of vision problems. Even with glasses over contacts, it was difficult to read. After five eye surgeries reading is much easier now but I’m totally hooked on listening. Many times I’ve foregone seeing a movie because the audio book production was so good.

The big thing is, I can listen to books and not feel guilty because I should be doing something else. ‘Cause I can do something else.  Except drive. I get too engrossed in the story. Shakes head here –Not a good thing. Now that I’m thinking about it, listening to the, shall I say, steamy parts, of a romance novel in the doctor’s office or in the dentist chair, eh, not good either. Well, it’s not bad that you’re listening to it there, it’s odd to explain why you’re fanning yourself and you’re hyperventilating. Whatever you do, just say no to the hygienist if she wants you to take out the earphones so she can also hear.

So, tell me, do you listen to your books? Do you have a favorite narrator?

I would know Dick Hill anywhere. He narrates many of my favorite books. Many actors lend their voices to books. If any of you are longtime watchers of Law and Order you remember there was a female psychologist on the show. Carolyn McCormick portrayed Dr Elizabeth Olivet, and narrates The Hunger Games Trilogy. I also have one narrator I will not listen too. Nope. He ruins the story for me.

I loved:
