I love audiobooks. They make my life much easier when I have multiple things to do during the day. Audible is one of the main sites I use to find audiobooks I want to listen to. It has a vast selection of not only popular audiobooks but originals and podcasts.

With an Audible membership, you get one credit a month. I know, many sites will offer you one credit a month but what Audible has over the other sites is that they have a huge collection of books included in their membership as well. It is hard to run out of things to read.

So yesterday I finally succeeded in finishing a book that I have been trying to finish for years. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. Now if you read at all or enjoy historical dramas you have probably heard of War and Peace and considered picking it up. Unfortunately, for the average reader, it is a really, really long book. It is actually several average-sized novels combined. Plus two epilogues. In short, it is a really long book and a whole lot of effort to take in. But also an amazing classic that should be read by every reader at least once.

Most of us however do not have the time to take on this kind of book when we are expected to meet our daily deadlines. So I turned to my favorite audiobook site Audible and decided to see what options there were. I found quickly that there was a few old readings of it, but they seemed a bit dry. Finally, I found an Audible exclusive reading by Thandiwe Newton and upon listening instantly fell in love with her performance of this classic novel.

It still took me weeks to finish because I had to listen in my downtime but it was entirely worth it. I strongly suggest that you take a look at this reading and marvelous novel via this link! https://www.audibletrial.com/zavdQG You will enjoy it as much as I did I just know it!

So if you have read any of my reviews for books aimed at children, you know that I take children’s literature very seriously. I have a few reasons for this, but the main one is I grew up with dyslexia and hated reading. Even beyond kids with learning disabilities, it can be hard to help a child learn a love of reading. Let’s be honest, the required reading in school is not always the most entertaining. So that is where a book club like Bookroo can come in handy!

History Hit

First of all, this isn’t an ad, it is a genuine review of a website I adore.

Are you a history nerd? I am, and I wear it with pride. I can sit back and inhale any topic of it for any extended period. If I could, I would spend all day with my head in a history book, or various websites. Sadly, this is impossible, so I have to consolidate the locations and time I spend doing so. I used to turn to YouTube for my fill of historical information, though they may not always be accurate, until I found History Hit.

For a low subscription fee, I pay $4.99 USD as month, you can get access to hundreds of history videos, podcasts and articles. History Hit has content on everything from ancient history, to medieval, 20th century and a lot more. And trust me, they do not limit the content to the famous well-known people either. This is content for people truly interested in history. I am particularly interested in the middle ages content they provide and never find myself disappointed.

I strongly suggest this site, if you are interested in history at all!
