Eileen

One of the joys of owning Eight Cousins is that my work is reading. But I had no idea how many new books are published each year, and how many of them I would really want to read. Customers looking for book suggestions start with staff recommendations, so in order to connect with our customers, we all try to read as many new titles as possible.

When searching for more time to read, I started using Libro.fm, which offers over 150,000 titles in downloadable audiobook format. Now whenever I'm driving, working around the house, or walking I can listen to a book. I thought I would have trouble following the stories and my mind would wander off, but the narrators bring the books to life and pull me right in. The only catch to listening to audiobooks is that I often have to stay in the car when I reach my destination because I'm so engrossed in the book!
