An Audiobooks Gift Guide & An Amazon Giveaway

Audible.com
Being able to enjoy a good book is one of life's little pleasures so if you're in need of a good gift idea, you might want to consider audiobooks. They make a fantastic gift for just about anyone for the holidays or any occasion. They're appropriate for all ages from children who can't get enough of their favorite stories to teens who are usually plugged in anyway, busy adults who like a good book but just can't find the time to read and older adults as a pleasant way to pass the time. Unlike regular books, audio books can be enjoyed while you're doing other things like traveling, working out or even doing chores. My husband likes to listen to them on his commute to/from work. Gift subscriptions to Audible.com can be purchased online and are available for 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. If your recipient already has an Amazon account, signing up is as easy as signing in. Audible.com offers a wide selection of over 150,000 popular book titles including bestsellers and new releases in a variety of genres. The books are delivered via an app so they can be played on a phone, tablet or computer anywhere, anytime.

To help you with your holiday shopping, Audible.com is currently offering 50% off their 3 month subscriptions which are regularly $45. Using this link, you can purchase a 3 month subscription for yourself or someone else for just $7.49/month. 

And if that's not cool enough, I've also teamed up with a lovely group of bloggers for an amazing $200 Amazon gift card giveaway. This is open to US residents only and ends this Friday 12/12/14. Please follow the instructions and enter via Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

Are you a fan of audiobooks? What's on your reading list?

Hi Rowena! What a wonderful giveaway! I have listened to an audio book once and it was kind of weird, but I think it's perfect for busy people indeed. Nowadays it's hard to find the time to read a book, so audiobooks are here to help. It's great when bloggers team up and organize things like that! I wish I could do this in my country as well. Wishing you a great Monday and a successful new week! xo

I must really try audio books again. I tried to listen to one before, but the narrator's voice was not the best. TY for heads up on this Audible discount, Rowena. I'll check it out.

Morning Rowena! You know that I didnt listen an audiobook from ages? I usually prefer to read but it would be a lovely way when you havent enough time or, as in my case, to improve some foreign language, actually you gave me an idea to improve my English lol!:) I must check out the site and see what it offers. Btw, oh Peter Rabbit, I love him <3 Have a lovely week ahead! xo

I've never listened to an audio book! But my best friend drives a van and he listens to audio books all the time to pass time.

Yes, reading books are very good for our opinions, but i am sad that now less and less choose to read a real book.

my husband loves audio books! it's his main thing to do during his commute on the subway!

I love reading and wish I have more time for it however, I am really old school about it too. I love the smell of books especially old books and I like flipping the pages. Online books never quite feel the same and I have never tried audio books before. I do think it'll feel a little weird to have someone narrating a book to me...weird but interesting.

Aw, so sad this comp is US only! I love audible though, I'm subscribed and like listening to books when I go running. I really need to re-listen to the 7 habits of highly effective people. You should give 'the habit of change' a go. That's a good book!

Great giveaway! I am addicted to Amazon - they truly have everything! Actually Narnia is also one of the books I want for the little one's bookshelf. Books really are a great gift too and you are reminding me to pick up a new book!
