Christmas Gift Guide: Book Worm Edition
While I definitely wouldn’t mind finding a pretty new handbag or fancy watch underneath the Christmas tree this year, I’m honestly way more excited to receive a few new books. Call me a nerd, but there are few things I enjoy more than starting a new book. Reading the opening paragraph of a great book is like starting a new adventure, and that’s why I love giving my friends and family books as a holiday gift. Books can provide a glimpse in another world, a chance to expand your knowledge, and the opportunity to laugh. While I love receiving books as a gift, I rarely have the time to sit down and read; however, I always listen to audiobooks while I’m driving, cooking, cleaning, and even sometimes when I’m working (shh..don’t tell!) That’s why I’m giving a Audible.com yearlong subscription to the book worms on my Christmas shopping list this year. With an Audible subscription, my friends and family will be able to pick out a new audiobook to read every month of the year. Keep reading to see some of the books that I’m hoping to read in the new year, and they also make excellent Christmas gift ideas!
If you’re shopping for someone who’s constantly on the road, audiobooks are the perfect choice. I probably spend half of my life driving in my car, so I couldn’t live without my Audible subscription. I simply open the Audible app on my phone, and I can listen to the latest books- which is SO much better than the radio. Seriously, a life without annoying commercials is amazing. This month, I’ve been working my way through Dragonfly in Amber, but I can’t wait to get Amy Poehler’s new book Yes, Please- hint, hint, Santa!
I’ve got big plans for 2015, and I know my friends and family do as well. Audiobooks help me learn new things and expand my horizon while I’m working. Whether I’m exercising at the gym or buying groceries, I can be learning and improving my life with an informative audiobook. I’ll definitely be taking advantage of Audible’s subscription offer for 50% off for myself and a few of my friends!
Don’t forget that audiobooks are a fantastic gift ideas for the little ones on your Christmas list! Listening to books helps children improve their vocabulary and stretch their imagination, so choose a variety of your childhood favorite books for your children, cousins, nieces or nephews this year instead of purchasing a toy that they’ll probably only play with for an hour or two. Books are the gift that keep on giving!
This Christmas, consider giving a gift that keeps on giving all year long. An Audible.com subscription will allow your loved one to choose 1-2 audiobooks per month, and right now you can purchase a subscription for an amazing price! If you’re planning to purchase an Audible subscription for yourself or for a gift this month, be sure to take advantage of their Gold Offer where you can save 50% off the first three months for only $7.49 with Audible coupon codes from Coupons.com!
