The apps connects to your local library and you can download eBooks or audio-books with your library card. You borrow the book for three weeks and then it returns for the next person in line. You can request titles and they download to your app when it becomes available.
I prefer audio-books - I can listen to them when I am driving or doing the dishes. You would be amazed at how many opportunities you have in a day to add a learning to your life.
"There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
I just finished listening to Laura Vanderakm's book What the Most Successful people do before breakfast. This book only took an hour to listen to and was an interesting study
from interviews of successful people in the corporate setting do to start their days - and it is only $2.99 on Amazon.
From the back cover:
Mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives. Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Laura Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day. While many of us are still in bed, these folks are scoring daily victories to improve their health, careers, and personal lives without sacrificing their sanity. What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your morning routine and jump-start your life before the day has even begun.
I have made a few changes in my morning routine since I listened to this book and it seems to be going pretty well so far. Check it out and I hope it inspires you!
