Free Audio Books Online
Do you have a love for books? I certainly do but my schedule doesn’t leave me much time to sit and read. So a couple of years ago, I decided that I would start listening to audio books as a way to keep engaged with books. I was intentional about finding time to listen to my growing list of books. I listen to audio books that will help me to grow in my industry and I download books that are just for fun! They are always on my phone so when I am at the gym or cleaning the house, I am listening to a book!
