To Read Or Not To Read The AudioBook Way? 5 Benefits…

The book club. It was the first. The apologies came in droves. Oh I started but couldn’t finish. It was the kids, the husband, household chores and so much more. Who has time to read anyway?

My secret and I remained silent. I had ordered the required paperback to be read by the time the group met. But delivery time would be a few days before the meeting. For sure I would have barely started much less finished reading.

Audiobook Rescue

Then the idea came to me. Why not order the audiobook version online and start listening immediately? Then by the time the paperback arrived I could finish my reading with the hard copy. And that I did.

So as the group complained they finally asked and I told them what I did. The envy on their faces grew like a fiery furnace.

I shared that experience to acknowledge that audiobooks work. As an author of several books on Success, leadership, and career development, my last book was different. It was more inspirational. The book GreenLight is filled with anecdotes, uplifting short stories, prayers and exhortations. Readers share it’s encouraging benefits. Many inquired of its audio format. So I complied.

Audiobook Benefits

Not an audiobook reader? Here I share 5 advantages:

1. Better Time Management

2. Enjoy the convenience of multitasking. You can listen while working, commuting or running.

3. More than one one person can read simultaneously. Road trip anyone?

4. Greater reach for authors as consumers are given wider choices of eBook, paperback or audio. Whatever their reading style, there’s an option.

5. Ability to read more books in a shorter time.

So while some are skeptical, audiobooks is the fastest growing channel these days and offer great benefits to those still on the fence.

What kind of reader are you? Audio, paperback, eBook? Do share, we would love to hear!

Happy Reading!

7 Top Favs To Change Non-Readers Into Book-Lovers…

When they born we read to them. They played outside. We avoided tech toys. But as they grew my daughters 2 sons were introduced to …yep … tech toys. Beyblade, Fortnite, YouTube games, and more. It’s now proving difficult to get them back-to-the-books.

I decided to search for help. Here’s what I found and particularly liked Grade Power Learning 13 Strategies for them to change to reading love! Here I share those I like:

Back-To-The-Books

  1. Pick the right books
  2. Read aloud

  4. Encourage all forms of reading
  5. Listen to audio books
  6. Let your reader choose
  7. Start a Series

Those were my top favs to transition non-readers into book-lovers. Any resonate? Are there more you can add? Do share. We would love to hear.

Writers Share 37 Funny Places To Do Book Signing….

After months, years or a decade of toil, you have finally finished your masterpiece! Yeaaa! Now onto  getting it out to the world. But where? How? Can you do it with a difference? In a writers forum the question was asked…

Where would be some funny places to do a book signing?

Here I share authors’ thoughts as they poured in their tales:

Funny Places For Book Launch

  1. Flea market
  2. The side of the road somewhere
  3. Ihop
  4. Outhouse line at the county fair
  5. Outside an Apple store
  6. 3D Theater
  7. Bluegrass Festival
  8. The Bathroom
  9. Carnival
  10. Chucky Cheese
  11. Beauty Salon
  12. Cemetery
  13. Hospital
  14. In the Bait shop at a local lake
  15. At a sign store
  16. At a winery
  17. Night club
  18. Funeral home
  19. Church
  20. County jail
  21. An organization for the blind
  22. High-end men’s clothing store
  23. McDonald’s
  24. Boxing gym
  25. Liquor store
  26. Laundromat
  27. Planned Parenthood
  28. An internet cafe
  29. A vet for a dog book
  30. At a book burning
  31. The stationary aisle at the local pharmacy
  32. In a kids backyard tree-house
  33. At the end of an obstacle course
  34. Under a mistletoe
  35. Bed, Bath & Beyond
  36. Aquarium
  37. Bowling alley

Yep, some of these are sure funny. But the thing is… it all depends on what your book is about. Your book’s theme can help your choice. For example if it’s about the story of dogs, then why not consider a veterinarian’s office. If it’s about building the perfect home, then Bed, Bath & Beyond will do.

So if you’re an author, go for it! Let your juices flow! Do the non-traditional. You and your guests will walk away with a smile. Any missing? Do share. We would love to hear.

Cheers!
