How I started reading way more books

Audible gives you access to thousands of audiobooks wherever you are

I don’t know about you, but I love to read.

Whether I’m learning something new from educational books or losing myself in a universe that’s embroiled in some fictional war, there’s nothing quite as engaging and relaxing as reading.

I do my best to set aside time to read, but it can get hard trying to fit it in with all the other things I have going on in my life.

Frustrated with the stack of books growing on my want-to-read pile, I finally decided to try listening to audiobooks on my commute and my morning runs.

Absolute game changer.

When I’m running, I get lost in the book and before I know it, I’m back at my place wishing my run were longer so I can listen to just a little bit more.

When I’m driving, I no longer get annoyed. Red light? Traffic? More book. Nice.

I get to read all the books I’ve been meaning to read without having to sacrifice my time. I’ve even started playing audiobooks on my speakers at home for when I’m cleaning or doing laundry.

One of the best parts about working at AppSumo is that I get to bother Anton about deals I want on AppSumo and he definitely came through this time.

Audible is the ultimate destination for audiobooks with over 150,000+ titles.

Regularly, Audible costs $14.95 a month.

For the next week only, we're giving you a free voucher to redeem for 3 months of Audible Gold for only $2.95/month (that's 80% off!)

That's 3 full audiobooks for the price of a cheap lunch :-O

You even get free access to the audio edition of the NY Times or the Wall Street Journal!

Interested in business? Listen to books by Tim Ferris, Sheryl Sandberg, Eric Ries, Dale Carnegie, and thousands of others all in your spare time.

Before trying audiobooks, I somehow just assumed it wasn’t for me. I’m so glad I gave them a shot and proved myself wrong.

This deal is an awesome way to see if you feel the same way. Click here to get the free voucher and make sure you don't miss out!

P.S. Comment below and let us know what audiobook you’re going to listen to first!
