[Our Recommendation List] Great Books and Audio Learning Resources

Thursday, December 07, 2023

I believe in using audio instead of reading because all we do is simply listen to audio teaching in the car between appointments- it’s a good duplication of time, and time we can afford to give!

No need to make notes, but the idea is that you listen to the same book over and over, before going to the next book.

Listening to it once just gives you the basics, and you will get a deeper understanding every time you listen. The more times you listen, the more you will retain, the more you grow into that new information and teaching! That’s how it works! It must be repetitive to work.

Two general ways you can easily get an audiobook- either download directly from iTunes or do what I do and go to audible.com.au and subscribe to one book a month (this is amazon.com’s entire audiobook library).

You get a cheaper deal for the first 3 months, then it’s about $20 a month.

You get one credit a month.

It doesn’t matter then how expensive the book is retail value, you get one credit a month, you can spend your credit on whatever audiobook you choose! Great value, especially when a book might be worth $30 to $40 each!

Then download it from ‘My Library’ having chosen your preferred format (iTunes compatible, or MP3, etc). Or even better, download the ‘audible’ app and stream the books from the app. I much prefer this method of listening.

Download it to your iPhone or whatever device you use in the car. Good audio listening requires you to understand this basic technology.

However, otherwise, order the audiobook from amazon.com (wait by snail mail for it to arrive) and listen to the discs.

Anyway, this is how I do it.

These books we highly recommend- most we have listened to several times over!
