This month we're going to be reading "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison", by Piper Kerman. Since this month will be so incredibly hectic for me with work obligations, the upcoming holidays, several close friends' birthdays, and planning my travel for Christmas, I have decided to download the audiobook of OITNB to my Kindle. That way, I can just pop in my earbuds at the gym or around the house and get some literary-time in when I would normally just be listening to music in the background. I'm also excited to hook up my Kindle's USB to my car, so I can enjoy Piper's story in surround sound while trapped in hideous L.A. traffic! I love finding ways to make good use of my sitting-in-horrible-gridlock time. Usually I just scroll through instagram (Shhhh - not while I'm MOVING, duh!)
I haven't really listened to an audiobook since, like, fourth grade, so I'm remaining optimistic they've stepped up their game since then. Audible.com offers two free downloads with a free 30-day trial, so it's totally risk-free to test this out. I think it's going to be super helpful in helping to make sure the book is absorbed despite the busy schedule of the upcoming month! I hate being a deadbeat book club member.
Once again, at the end of the month, I'll be posting book club discussion prompts for you to use on your own or answer in the comments!
