Autism Books: Not enough time to read? Listen to the Audio Book!


Click to see Audiobook on Amazon


I told you April has been a busy month. One of the many things going on this month was the release of Twirling on Audio book!

I’m very excited about the audio edition. It has been in products for several months being narrated and produced by the very talented Alicia Diaz  of Bright Voice Audio.  Alicia

Thanks so much Alicia, for all your hard work!

How do you feel about audio books?  

Aspie Teen LOVES using Audible for listening to his books.  I struggle with audio processing issues, and often stray away from audio books because, I cannot learn by listening. Until very recently (the past few years) I always equated reading with learning, and rarely read for enjoyment–and almost never read fiction.  How the times have changed! Now I need to read at night, mostly fantasy novels, in order to decompress.  It has become a huge ritual for me, one that I cannot fall asleep without.

My new-found love for reading stories, has changed my mind about audio books–as long as they are not text books!  A story on audio book; I can do that.

Listen to Alicia help tell my story:  Believe me you will be glad that she did, I trip over and then lose my words when I get nervous.

So what did I say about FREE?

I love free stuff. It is the cheap in me! For those who DO NOT already have an Audibles.com account, they offer a free 30-day trial offer, which includes a free book download.

If you love audible and stay with them after 30-days, I think the membership is $14.99 per month, again includes one book download . Obviously, getting new customers is Audible’s motives for offering a trial with free book; however, you can cancel before your 30 days and walk away if you like–and you would have still been able to hear Twirling free.  Nothing to lose–go give it a try.

Twirling is also available on iTunes.

Unfortunately, there are no offers for current Audible members 🙁 but if I come across something I will be sure to pass it on!
