So I guess I am already in the Obsessed category.  Most of mine our children's audio so I can listen when my children are in the car.


  1. lol I guess so I wish I could listen to more they just seem more expensive to me is there anywhere you know has cheaper audiobooks?

    Ya Book Haven

  2. I borrow all of mine from the library. Very rarely do I buy them. I know our library also offers so free audio downloads. I've heard good things about too. If you join their club(which does cost something by the month) your first one is free and then youget a discount on their regular price as long as you belong. If there is somethign I really want from the library and it is checked out I request it and the fee is just fifty cents.

  3. Thank you so much for joining! I'm glad to have you on board.

    Great advice on how to get audio books. I've only done the digital download through my library which is really convenient. I should stop in and see if they have any on site!
