For those who know me well, it’s not a secret I love a good audiobook.  I’m always listening to one.  It’s become a joke with my family because I walk around the house wearing headphones. But, my favorite place to listen is the beach. Audible.com is my friend.

This is my set up at the beach. Hat, Headphones, Suntan lotion and I’m good to go!

Laundry or cleaning up takes on a new life when you’re listening to an audio.  It makes the mundane bearable.   A long car ride or a brisk walk is one of my favorite times to enjoy audio.

I like sitting near the jetty and watching the waves crash. It’s mezmerizing.

It allows you to become immersed in the story and time flies.  I feel lucky because I live near the beach, so popping down there after work or early mornings is a breeze.  It allows me to enjoy the outdoors and to take in all the activity around me, yet it’s peaceful and relaxing.  My headphones buffer any outside noise.

Watching the boats come in the inlet is another favorite while listening. So relaxing!

Sometimes it became uncomfortable having earbuds in my ears for an extended period.  I was taking breaks from listening just to give my ears a rest.

Watching the surfers with my chair in the water.
What could be better than seeing surfers as you relax at the beach?

I complained of this often, so for Christmas, I received new headphones as a gift from my daughter.

They come in a case which is helpful when traveling.

It has changed my listening experience! She gave me the Bose On-Ear Style, which I liked.  But my younger daughter suggested I exchange them for the style that cups your ears instead.  They are more comfortable and buffer outside sound better.  I agree!  The Bose Around-Ear Style headphones are fantastic.

You can see the padding that goes around the ear.

No more taking breaks and the sound quality is excellent.  They are amazing! The Bose headphones will make a huge difference in your audio listening experience.

I ended my day watching the boats go back to their dock.

I love Audible.com!  I have their app on my phone, so I’m never without a book, and their selection is impressive.  I can’t say enough about their customer service. They’re easy to contact and quick to respond.   If you listen to a book and find you didn’t like it, you can return it, no questions asked.

One time I was going on a trip and needed a book, but didn’t have any credits left, so I decided to upgrade my subscription.  I would have had to wait until the next billing cycle to get my book, so they gave me a free book to tide me over.   If you’re interested in trying an audiobook, Audible.com has a free trial.  If you’re new to audio, below are a few suggestions to get you started.

THE SCENT OF RAIN AND LIGHTENING by Nancy Pickard

A FALL OF THE MARIGOLDS by Susan Meissner

ORDINARY GRACE by William Kent Krueger

THE SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR by Helen Simonson

If you need more suggestions feel free to email me, I’m happy to help out fellow listener!

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever
    a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a means you can remove me from that service? Kudos!
