Over the past few months, we have all suddenly become “couch potatoes.” To diversify our home life, Artgetting offers to listen to interesting audio books!
Fans of classical reading find it difficult to switch to audio books. We certainly do not say that audio books are better. Rather, it’s just another way of perceiving information (by ear). Some books may be better perceived aurally than by sight. It seems to us that self-development books are perceived aurally very well. Let’s start with them!
Liasten and Develop Yourself!
You can clean, cook or do other things while listening to self-development books. Here are a couple of books that we can advise.
The Confidence Code. Katty Kay and Claire Shipman provide a guide to understanding the importance of confidence. You will learn how to achieve it. It is good book for women of all ages and professions.
Waking up by Sam Harris. The author tells about spiritual practice . According to lifehacker.com.au It is part seeker’s memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality.
Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. Business reporter explains why habits exist and how they can be changed. Ths book will help you to understand human nature and its transformation.
Getting Thing done. David Allen will help you to transform the way you work, overcome feelings of anxiety, confusion and feel fine about what you are not doing.
Brain rules by John Medina. Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget and so important to repeat new knowledge? How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? The New York Times bestseller will help you to answer these questions.
Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy. The book will tell you how to organize your day, how to get the right things done. It is the book about time management: decision, discipline, determination.
Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know by Malcom Gladwell. It is a real course about communication! This book tells about the conflicts we would avoid but we didn’t.
For Readers On the Move
Life is motion. Sometimes there is not enough time to read! Audiobooks – it is the best way of self-education on the move! It seems to us that detective stories or dramas can be useful as well.
Books we can suggest are: Sherlock Holmes by A.C.Doyle`s (with excellent narrator Stephen Fry); The Instituee by Stephen King (it is the novel about a boy named Luke who gets kidnapped and taken to an “institute” where paranormal talents are harnessed); Bird Box by Josh Malerman, it is the mysterious story about something characters can’t look at (they are all focused on sound rather than sight).
Where to listen to books?
There are many sites where you can listen to audio books (both free and paid). Here couple of good sites: Libtivox; LIT2GO; Loyal Books; Mind Webs; Open Culture; Overdrive; Scribl; Project Gutenberg.
