My New Gig at SFFaudio.com

Audiobooks seem to be on the rise lately with companies like Audible and a plethora of other sites allowing people to keep up with their busy schedule while reading the books they love.

If you're anything like me, I always have a book going in multiple formats so that no matter what, a spare moment can be used exactly how I want to use it - reading of course. I usually have a book going in paper on my nightstand, one on my Kindle for those moments when the phone app is more accessible, and of course an audiobook for my diving and walking.

I'm not joking, literally every moment is spent doing what I love. It's also the only way I can read as many books as I do.

I read a number of audiobooks every year and up until this time it has been almost the only way I can read all the books I've been meaning to read for ages, but haven't gotten around to. Well, now that will be changing a bit as I'll be posting all my audiobook reviews at SFFaudio.com.

As my last post pointed out, I read about 11 or 12 audiobooks a year, so it's nothing that will change too much about this blog, but yet I'm very excited about this tiny change. It also means that I will be getting audiobook review copies, so who knows when I'll read all the books I've been meaning to get to . I know, woe is me, the terrible life of getting the thing you love just slightly less than you kids for free.

With that riveting intro, I also wanted to let you know my first review is up today:

Island of the Sequined Love Nun was actually my first foray into his work, but what got me more than anything else, even more than Moore’s popularity and humor, was the title itself. It says it all. And after having read it, it’s an extremely fitting title. (Review - Island of the Sequined Love Nun)

Hey congratulations, that is awesome!

Yes, audiobooks are such a wonderful way to read. I get so many more books read in a year being able to listen to them on my drive to and from work, and my wife and I generally take a few trips during the year and it is always a pleasure for us to find something we want to listen to together and enjoy.

Congrats! That is pretty awesome!

We are very happy to have you (and you should see the TWENTYSEVEN books that arrived at my door today.....)

@Carl - We're the same, but I have to go way out of my preference zone because my wife's not too keen on the fantastical stuff. :)

@Ryan - Thanks a ton, I'm pretty stoked.

@Jenny - Oh you jerk, exacerbating my already horrible problem that no one would ever want to have ever. :D :D
