Prior to lockdown, eAudiobooks were a normal part of my routine. In fact the only way I could cope with the commute to work was by listening to a book.
Working from home hasn’t curbed my enthusiasm for eAudiobooks in the least. I now find myself becoming just a bit obsessed with browsing all the amazing books in our BorrowBox library and I absolutely love the way you can listen to a preview of the title before borrowing.
After all what is more relaxing than someone reading you a story, which is basically what an eAudiobook book is right? eAudiobooks give me the chance to escape and block out all the annoying, stressful things and enjoy a good book when I am unable to actually physically sit down and read one.
So without further ramblings I thought I would share with you some of the great eAudiobooks I have listened to; not only during lockdown but over the last few months and my ‘all time’ favourites.
It is my hope that you will find something amazing to listen to and take your mind off everything going on at the moment.
You can find all my listening favourites in our BorrowBox Library.
Here is hoping you all find the perfect book to listen to, and lose yourself in the amazing world of storytelling that is eAudiobooks.
I forgot to mention that BorrowBox recently launched their new and improved BorrowBox website and app and I am loving it! The ease of use and the attractive way the books are displayed and how easy it is to navigate around really has had me spend way too much time browsing and reserving.
You can explore BorrowBox for yourself here!
