Hi, my title is Carol and I am addicted to audio books. My story: I am 32 and hooked on audiobooks. I have been trying to cut back but I cant. I used to be first introduced to audiobooks 12 years back. My parents purchased a bithday present as me a King audio book. It included 10 publications on cassettes each 25 minutes. I finished listening to it the first night. Then, I started buying audio books for me and for all of my friends birthdays (whether they liked audio books or not). I moved to audio books on CDs and later on to online audio books as times handed. This fresh mavis beacon portfolio has various striking tips for the inner workings of it. I have known all of the online audio guide rental services and buying services. In fact, I'd a merchant account in most of these. My normal output was two audio books per week but I remember some weeks where I skipped sleeping and listened to up-to five audio books. I purchased almost any new fiction audio book in the market. I were able to find some free audio books but nonetheless paid plenty of money for my audio book selection. I got hooked on the comfort of getting a miniature book. I got addicted to the sound clips, the music and the narration. I got hooked on the capability to listen to audiobooks anytime and anywhere (I remember hearing it in the restroom and in work and in other strange sites). And then I made a decision to make the move. I would join it, if I cant beat it. I resigned from work and made a profession out of my hobby I started earning profits out of my extensive understanding of audiobooks. In these times, I create reviews about new audio books and serve as a guide for audio books publishers. I am content listening to free audio books and being paid for it (just finished listening to the final Harry Potter audio book). Perhaps you have tried hearing audiobooks? Test it..
