Listen While You Eat

November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving, guys ‘n gals! Hope your day is filled with healthy portions of food, family and good fortune. I’ll keep this post brief, since today is about family, but I wanted to share a quick tidbit of advice before diving fork-first into my mom’s famous sweet potatoes.

Picture this: First round of dinner is over and it’s time to break before dessert. The football fans in your family have all gathered around the TV to watch the game and there’s a content, lazy smile on your face. You’re waiting to digest (hence the unbuttoned top button of your jeans) and decided to pass the time by cracking open the book you stashed in your bag, but you know that as soon as you turn the page, you’ll be out quicker than a cracked light bulb.

One word: audiobook. Today is the perfect time to fulfill your bookish needs audibly. It’s the perfect solution if you think about it. You can kick back on the couch, let your eyes drift close, and still continue to read along! Plus, it tunes out the sounds of  family members’ whooping and hollering at the TV (football fans, I tell ya!) and there’s no need to worry about inadvertently reading the same sentence over and over because you keep looking up to make sure no one’s snuck a taste of the pumpkin pie.

If you’re on board with this idea (And why wouldn’t you be? It’s genius!) but don’t have any audiobooks on hand, don’t fret! Despite the holiday, it’s not too late to pick out your choice of audiobooks. Here are a few sites that offer instant audiobook downloads:

I’ve already scoured the sites and am down to six choices (I know, I know — I’m terrible at choosing), so I’m all set! Now, my bookish friends, it’s your turn. So while last-minute preparations are being made and there’s a lull in family obligations, hop on the net and search for your perfect Thanksgiving read (listen?). Enjoy!

ROAMING QUESTION: Which Thanksgiving dish will you be going back for seconds?
