Relationship Status: In a Menage with my Library Card and Personal Shelves (including the Audible Romance Package). Meaning you might see a whole lot of older reads popping up here and that is OK. I am just happy to be reading again 🙂
Category: Blogger Confession
So on 12-05-17 I signed up for the free month trial of the Romance Package from Audible.
Here are my goals during the trial: would I use it enough to justify paying $6.95 when I have multiple library cards. Also are there enough audiobooks in sub romance genres that I listen too (mostly Historical, PNR, Romantic Suspense, and some Contemporary) that would keep me interested. So I hope to answer that question and general usefulness so you can make a decision whether you want to give it a whirl (or not).
Here are the pictures from Book Expo (I didn’t get a lot): Al Franken and Marc Maron! They were both funny as hell! The slide show is other phots from their talk. My Book Expo gets 🙂 More shots from Book Expo in the Slideshow Pictures with Friends (thank god they took them because I was horrible remembering my phone has a camera) Audies –More pictures in the slideshow!! Pictures with Narrators including but not limited too: Karen White, Angela Dawe, Cris Dukehart, Helen Lloyd, Anne Flosnik, Traci Odem, Xe Sands, Tanya Eby, Sarah Mollo-Christensen and Many More ! Other Random NY Shots and Travel Shots Save Save Save
It has been awhile since I have done one of these but I feel this post will probably be more of a Confession than anything else. I could have titled it “How I went to NY, felt like a bit of a fraud (yet didn’t) but enjoyed every minute of it”—however that was a little too long. Buckle up because this is going to be long, probably won’t stay on topic, and the pictures will be in a separate post–so you can skip it all together if you like visuals! I will say that I am hoping this post will help those that have crisis in whether or not this blogging, vloggin, podcasting, booktubing, bookstagram, etc is really worth it. Also I am pretty sure I misspelled half of those—sorry 🙂 Also before I get to any of it: A very special thank you to Stephanie for being my person for the 3 days. Also Joc (AudioFlow), I know we just met but having you at both Happy Hours made me feel like we are now forever Partners in Crime. Confession Part (then the rest is really the happy crazy stuff) So this year I won The Audiobook Blogger of […]
Last Thursday, I got the news that I won the APA Blogger of the Year Award. I have been speechless since then which means it is a good thing I couldn’t say anything till now —cause Y’all it is freaking amazing and a little bit weird. Who knew that a hobby about something I love would equal industry awards? It is an honor and something that I am still processing. However, I can totally tell you how great the runner-ups are: Shelf Addiction and Audiobook Reviewer. The Audiobook community is a very supportive community and just sharing space with these two is a total honor. They are well deserving and totally worth following. Go forth and find out for yourself! Instead of trying to come up with an appropriate way to say Thank You (mostly cause I don’t think I have the words for it–and on a side-note I am NEVER judging a winner of an award again that can’t come up with a good speech). I am going to write a love letter to Audiobooks and all those involved! My dearest Audiobooks, I love you with all my heart! You have gotten me through sad times, happy times, tough […]
