Jen’s Best of 2014

Jen’s Best of 2014 It’s that time of year again. The time we all look back over the past year and take a look at our favorite reads. This year is a bit different for me because I started listening to audiobooks. Audiobooks are a very different experience, but an equally valid method of enjoying the written word. I included each audiobook in my overall “books read” count, but since pretty much all of the books were off my TBR and/or “re-reads,” of some of my favorite titles, I’ve decided to keep a separate “best of” list for the audiobooks. As of today (December 23, 2014) I have completed 124 books, and I expect...

I #amlistening to Audiobooks!

I #amlistening to Audiobooks! For a couple of years now, my good friends Jennifer (The Book Nympho), Liza (Blogging by Liza), Felicia (The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog), Marquetta (Love to Read for Fun), and others have been touting audiobooks. And my continual reply was “I don’t do audiobooks.” Let me tell you, it wasn’t for lack of trying! I attempted to listen to an audiobook a few times, but I never was able to really enjoy the book.
