Email #12: Audiobooks.
This email is part of a series of practical advice on how to deal with the stress of being arrested. This is not specifically related to your case.
"When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen." - Ernest Hemingway
As we grow older and our lives get more hectic, it can get harder to find time to sit down and read a book. This is distressing because new ideas are vital to our growth as human beings. Over the last few years I've discovered how easy it is to listen to audiobooks while working on other projects, such as yard work, washing the dishes, driving around town, or exercising.
“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” - Groucho Marx
I recently learned that you can borrow audiobooks from the library! The app is called OverDrive. All you need is a library card (and password).
You can also buy audiobooks at Audible.com (which belongs to Amazon) or audiobooks.com.
Personally, I alternate between books about business, personal growth, and rock and roll biographies. Here are my favorites:
Recovery, Freedom from Our Addictions, by Russell Brand
Mentors: How to help and be helped, by Russell Brand
Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life From Dear Sugar, by Cheryl Strayed
The Icarus Deception, by Seth Godin
Life, by Keith Richards
Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline
I hope you give it a try! These books can provide 8 to 25 hours of entertainment for less than $20. It is an incredible value.
How about this? Respond to this email with "yes, pls" and let me know which of those audiobooks you would like, and I'll buy it for you.
As always, if you have any questions about your case, please call or email us!
