Believe it or not, I only really “discovered” the incredible-ness of audiobooks this past year. I’m such a visual person, that audiobooks never appealed to me. But at my husband’s encouragement, I listened to one audiobook.
And I was hooked! I realized that I could listen while I folded laundry, cleaned the kitchen or bathroom, cooked, or did some knitting.
However, even though I knew that listening to audiobooks would be a great way to help use my time more efficiently when my hands are busy and my mind is free, I didn’t do a good job of being intentional about listening to audiobooks and only ended up listening through a handful in 2011.
In 2012, I want to be more intentional about listening to audiobooks. With this in mind, my husband helped me come up with a list of 12 audiobooks to listen to–one for each month. I figure that if I get in 10-20 minutes of audiobook listening most every day, I can easily go through one or more audiobooks per month.
Here’s my list:
12 Audiobooks I Plan to Listen to in 2012
January — Developing the Leader Within You
February — The Go-Getter
March — The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers
June — Business By the Book
July — The One-Minute Entreprenuer
September — Made to Stick
October — The Mentor Leader
November — Rhinoceros Success
December — Guerrilla Marketing
As I finish each of these, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on them in my Good Reads posts. Have you read or listened to any of these books? I’d love to know what you think!
