Reading a Good Book

Don’t get me wrong there is nothing like sitting down with a good book, but I have found there is nothing like driving to and from work with a good book either.  I list to more Audible Books than I do the radio these days.  I find it stress relieving to listen to a book while I drive.  In fact for me it is not just two and from work, anytime I am in the car by myself I am listening to a book of some kind.  The current book I am listing to, While You Were Mine by Ann Howard Creel.   All the Ava Miles books were some of my favorite audio books.  I couldn’t stop listening to all of them!  The nice thing is too, audible.com is owned by amazon.com, so some of the Kindle books have what is called whispersync, which means you have the option to read and listen at the same time, or read only, or even listen only.  And the best thing, so of the audio versions of books are only $1.99.  Great price for an audiobook!

Southern Belle Favorite: Amazon/Amazon Prime

I am an Amazon.com junkie.  There is usually at least one box a week coming to the house, so I can not even try to deny it, there is proof.  And I love pretty much all things Amazon.  I have two Kindles, one paperwhite and one fire, I use subscribe and save for my k-cups, I have a fire tv stick for when we travel, and I would buy the fire phone in a heart beat if the price was not so high.  Last year I had just renewed my prime when the price went up so I was okay till this year.  I tried getting by without renewing my prime but the first time I ordered something without my prime shipping advantage it took over a week to get, and there were Birthday gifts.  After that I just could not do it anymore I broke down and paid that higher prime price.  It’s not that I mind paying for the prime, I just wish you could pay monthly and not all at one time.  I honestly do not know what I would do without amazon.  And I really do not use my prime for the free movies and tv.  I hardly watch prime videos and I use prime music from time to time.  I get the prime more for the shipping.
