Being an avid reader, it’s no doubt that books are my best friend and I always make time to read them. But because of the hectic schedule, sometimes I don’t get enough time.
Like I travel a lot, spend time with my loved ones, manage my online business & much more.
Because of all these things, I become exhausted by night and I don’t feel like reading a book.
I mean, I want to but I can’t.
But, guess what? I still read them.
Technically speaking, I listen to them.
I know books are not a tape recorder that plays, but Audiobooks are.
Instead of books, I use Audiobooks from Audible to listen to my favorite books.
Now you might think, what is that?
Well, that’s what I will explain here and give you 5 reasons why I love them.

5 REASONS WHY I LOVE AUDIBLE
If you love reading books, then I am damn sure you will love Audible.
Still, have any confusion?
Well, here are my 5 reasons why I have a crush on Audible.
1. LISTEN TO IT ANYWHERE, ANYTIME
As I mentioned earlier, my schedule is kinda hectic & I don’t get enough time.
Someday I am traveling, other days I am with my friends and so on.
Now, if I am traveling, then keeping a book always is kinda annoying. I mean, carrying a book is good if you are traveling on a train or bus, but what if you are driving either a car or bike?
In such conditions, it’s impossible to read books. Right?
So, in such a scenario, audiobooks always come to the rescue. I only need to listen to my audiobooks through my smartphone and that’s it.
No need to carry a book and no need to hold books.
2. YOU CAN CONSUME AUDIOBOOKS FASTER
As already mentioned, time was my biggest problem. So, even if I was able to make some time for reading books, I could end up reading only 1 book per month or sometimes, it’s only half.
But with audiobooks, I literally completed the same books within a week which is amazing. The reason why audiobooks work best is due to its flexibility.
Forget about late night readings when you can listen to them while doing other works. This is the beauty of audiobooks. However, Audible only provides 1-2 audiobooks per month as per its plan.
That is why I prefer to choose an audiobook of over 20 hours duration which lasts me a month. But that’s not all, even if I want to have another audiobook, Audible straight away gives me a 30% discount on the purchase as a member.
Thus, this allows me to save a few bucks on additional purchases.
3. MAKES YOUR LISTENING EXPERIENCE GREAT
When books are read by narrators especially professional actors or voice-over artist, the listening experience becomes more vivid.
The accents, the pronunciations, the way they read makes all the stories bring back to life. Definitely, it’s a different experience and I absolutely love it.
Also, the Audible app has features where you can absolutely control the pace of reading. If you want to listen to it fast or slow, you have the power to do so.
4. IT HAS A LARGE LIBRARY
The reason why Audible beats other audiobook service is because they have a huge library of over 1,80,000 audiobooks.
All of them are categorized well and you have a massive option to choose whichever audiobooks you want to listen.
You can also find such audiobooks which aren’t available in other services. After all, it is owned by Amazon which itself makes it more popular.
5. YOU CAN RELAX & READ AT THE SAME TIME
There are times when I wanna completely relax but also wanna read books as well. But due to exhaustion, it becomes quite difficult to do so.
I know, some of you also feel the same thing & it sucks. However, that’s when Audiobooks becomes handy.
All I do is just lay down on my bed keeping my head on the soft pillows. Plug my earphone, close my eyes & start listening to audiobooks. This helps me to listen as well as relax at the same time. So soothing experience.
Well, these are the reasons why I love Audible so much. If you too have the same struggle for reading books, then I highly recommend to give it a shot.
As of now, I have quit my job to take full-time blogging as my career. Due to this, I have immense time to do both the activities i.e. reading & listening.
However, when I am traveling or doing any sort of work, I prefer Audible instead of physical books. So, if you think that it can be helpful for you too. Try it.
