This week for What to Read Wednesday I have something a little different for you. We might want to call it What to Listen To Wednesday because this week’s book is an Audible Original that you can only get on Audible.
When you sign up for Audible you get 2 free Audible Originals every month in addition to one audio book credit every month. Effectively you get 3 books for the price of one! It’s a great deal. And if you’re busy like me sometimes when you try to sit down to read at night you can only get a few sentences in before you start reading the inside of your eyelids. So listening to audio books while cooking or cleaning has been a great way to get my reading in. I highly recommend Audible. It’s been awesome so far
And I have loved the Audible Originals, especially the one I’m recommending today. Rivals: Frenemies Who Changed the World by Scott McCormick. It’s a nonfiction history book that explores different rivalries in history that had an impact on culture, laws, and science. I found the book really interesting and an easy listen. Even if you’re not a history buff you will like this book. Everything is explained in an easy to understand way.
The fun thing about the Audible Originals is that there are sound effects that add to the listening experience. More like a radio program than just having a book read to you. That’s exactly how this book is too!
It’s also a quick listen, just under 3 hours, and I found it mostly without bias except for in the case of Burr and Hamilton but I will let you decide for yourself.
So will you be trying out Audible and their original productions? Let us know in the comments below.
