I didn't receive any review books this week, but I finally decided to try out some audio books.  Don't know what took me so long,.  My friend Nereyda has been telling me I need to joint Audible for a while now.  These are what I purchased from audible this week.  (I've already read a couple of these, but they were on sale and I have a 45 minute ride to and from I thought I'd just listen again :)

That's it for me this week.  How was your week?


  1. I still need to read Sentinel and I see you went on an Abbi Glines buying spree. Awesome haul of books.

    Books of Love

  2. Wow! 45 minutes to and from work? I'm glad I live in a small town and have a 5 minute commute. Of course, that doesn't leave time for audiobooks. I hope you enjoy the ones you chose - both new and old. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    1. The sad part is I only live 25 miles from where I work. It's just the traffic that takes so long to get through. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I think audio books are great if you have a long commute, I would definitely listen to more of them if I did.
    Congrats on all the new books. :)

  4. Yes audible books for the commute is a fantastic idea! Have a wonderful week Ellen :)

  5. YAY!

    This post made me happy! Audiobooks are a lifesaver! I had to work an hour to and from work every day and that's what got me into audiobooks in the first place. I hope you like them. Relistening to some of your favorites is a great way to get into ausiobooks if youre a newbie. Thats' how I started. Now I can listen to audiobooks and pretty much do anything else.

    I just heard Bad For You, Sebastian York's voice is so yummy! I hope you like him. That Shayna girl and Elizabeth Louise are great NA narrators too. The Clipped Wings book are amazing on audio if you haven't heard them. And Maybe Someday is probably my favorite audiobook.

    I'm not a fan of Justine Eyre but a lot of people like her. Just remember, you can always return audiobooks if you don't like the narrator or the book. Let me know what you think!

    Happy listening!

    1. Thanks. I've been listening to Own the Wind. I didn't think I"d like audio as much, but I'm finding it just as captivating :)

  6. Oooo, yes, Nereyda is all about those audiobooks! Looks like you had a field day with the Abbi Glines books! I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Ellen :)

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

    1. They were on sale - several for just $1.99 and I just couldn't resist :)

  7. Audiobooks are so perfect for driving (and running, if I'm not lazy, haha). I've been wanting to check out Abbi Glines for a while now. Hope you enjoy all your new audiobooks!

    Here's my Sunday Post & STS (:

  8. What a great batch of books! I got my copy of Own the Wind signed tbis weekend. I'm trying to force myself to get back into audio. Enjoy your books, Ellen!

  9. I'm not really a fan of audio books, but I don't mind giving them a try. Nice haul. Happy reading/listening :)

  10. Wow, you got some pretty amazing books this week. Happy reading.

  11. I still don't get with audio books…hm, don't know what it is, but I just seem to lose concentration. Enjoy all your books, I love the covers!

  12. Dude, Ellen, I was apprehensive about audio books too. I've been traveling a ton this summer so I finally gave in. I had no idea what I was missing out on, they're AWESOME! I'm glad you're enjoying them.

  13. Look at all those Abbi books. Hope you enjoy!


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
