Books and Audio Books

I love reading and though I feel like I do not read as much as I used to, I think I compensate that by reading blogs and articles on the Internet.

I also like to listen to Audio Books. They are especially great to put me to sleep.

However an innocent hobby such as reading can be pricey and being the frugal person that I am, I have decided to turn to the Classics which are available for free. I started with the usual good stuff like Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility, Sherlock Holmes, Emma etc.

Lately, I have come across a title called "At the Villa Rose" by A. E. W. Mason. I was not familiar with the author or his works but, the book was surprisingly good. It's genre was Mystery and a great mystery it was. There are other works available by him and I think, I will listen to them too.

I use Kindle for Android, Oodle Books and Librivox for my new hobby

  1. Does your library offer e-books and audio books? I don't like to spend money on books either, so I just borrow whatever I want to read/listen to for free. Sometimes I have to wait a bit on more current/popular books, but I always have something in my queue

    1. I have always envied the libraries in the US. We do not have such organized libraries here like you guys do.

  2. I was going to suggest the library as well, as we have the ebook/audiobook option here as well. What a shame you don't! Kindle has a decent amount of books for free, but it does depend on what you like (I'm quite particular).

    1. I like detective, spy stories, conspiracy theories and most classic novels.
