I've had my Kindle Fire for what, two years now? And I've never used it to listen to an audio book. Of all the things I can do on it, I've probably spent the most time playing games. Age of Conquest is awesome (!!) but it's also a time-suck.
Each morning when I get up I get on the elliptical trainer for 20 minutes. I turn on the radio but don't always want to listen to music or, what's far worse, the myriad commercials. I want to burn 20 minutes! I was discussing this with a guy at work one day and he suggested audio books. Hmmm, I thought, not a bad idea.
And then I did nothing with that suggestion. Until a few minutes ago.
I signed up on Audible.com to get 2 free audio books, and I have don't have to pay anything for 30 days. This gives me 30 days to see if I like listening to audio books at 6am any more than I like listening to the radio! If I do I pay $14.95 a month, which includes one book download.
Now I'm going to go fire up the Kindle and see what books I should download. I'm thinking one will be this book on John Adams. Can't decide if, for the second book, I should get some "contemporary politics" or perhaps some good ole relaxing fiction.
