I Wasn’t Abducted By Aliens!

 


Bummer, I know!

I kinda feel like I was though.

First:

My one and only baby left for dorm life in college, and oh what an adventure getting her moved in was.

Second:

We are selling our current home

to buy our new home,

which is almost complete and I would 💗 to be spending Xmas there.

However, we can’t get there until we sale the one we are currently in.


This is very stressful in case you want to know.

Not to mention sometimes dangerous.
I seem to have a knack for pulling stuff down on my head.  And the injury to my eye was very uncomfortable in the healing process.  You can’t really put ointment on it. 

Not to mention the aches and pains that come with the territory of packing and moving in general.
😐

Since the house is still on the market, we are tweaking the things where we can, with the no budget we have. As well as sorting and packing what’s still left.

 

Audible has updated their review platform, which will allow me to do mini reviews right after I finish a title, instead of just rating.

I’m super excited about this!

Going to be doing Quickies!

Then I can go back and update the mini review with a longer full review.

Thanks for all the complementary titles! They are really getting me through this crazy time.

XOXO

Audiobooks Have Come to the Google Play Store

Audiobooks are on Google Play


You would think that this was already a thing, but then you would be thinking wrong.

Up until these past few days, auidobooks were not an option in the google play store. As audiobooks continue to gain popularity, I wonder if it will be a trending thing for all sites that currently do not offer the audio counterpart to their ebook offerings. 

This is NOT subscription service!

All purchases are A-La-Carte!


50% off promotional offer
check the store

Offer ends March 18, 2018 to activate the coupon after which you will have up to March 25, 2018 to use it. Valid in United States only.

Sorry for the mini absence!

Sorry for the mini absence, I’ve been having a pity party. 🙁

MUCH THANKS to all my narrator & author friends out there for your generous contributions to my audio habit, it got me through the worst of it. 💞
You are loved! 😘

On a positive note, I will have lots of reviews & read a longs to post!

Wish I could connect my brain to my computer and just think my reviews and it would type and code for me!

XOXO

Losing Another Audiobook Source!

Sadly, another one of the libraries I have a card to has chosen to drop a source of audiobooks!


This is the second library card that will not have access anymore to Hoopla.

The other libraries have been dropping audiobooks from the service, but this is the 2nd one to abandon it all together. I have heard mention that a library is charged for each download through the site. Apparently the amount of downloads for audiobooks is to the level that the act of dropping only those, makes it affordable? I don’t know.

Out of all of my Library memberships, only 2 were still supporting Audiobooks through the Hoopla program, and now as of January 1, 2018, I will only have 1. 🙁 

Hoopla’s format is not my favorite by far, but they do seem to get new releases before even Audible for series and authors I listen to. 


Fingers crossed, the one solo hoopla account will hold!
