I don't remember exactly when I downloaded Audible, but I do remember why. I had gotten a copy of The Girl on the Train for Christmas but it was unreadable. Some of the text was so off I had no idea what was happening. As in there were not only typos, but also missing text, & swapped text. If it hadn't been for a couple of my friends raving about the book I probably would have just let it go.
I fought audio books for a long time because I was a strict "music in the car" person. However, I'm also really bad at sitting down & reading books. Because I really wanted to know what happened in the book, & because I have an hour+ commute to work each way everyday, I decided to give it a try.
I'm still a music in the morning type of person, but I'd say at least half the time on my way home I listen to audio books. And after finishing The Girl on the Train, my Audible library quickly became filled with personal development type books. In fact, of the 13 books I currently have in my library, over half are some type of PD/self-help book.
Here are 5 that started shifting the way I approach life. They're in order based on how much I enjoyed them. I've actually listened to the first two twice.
I am mildly obsessed with Iliza Shlesinger. I have also watched each of her Netflix specials multiple times, & if I get my act together, hopefully I will get a ticket to see her perform when she comes to Dallas later this month.
I also find Jen Sincero particularly awesome & have listened to another one of her books, which I'll share on another post, & can't wait to listen to the rest of the books she has written.
And while I actually found Girl, Wash Your Face slightly preachy at times, I am looking forward to Girl, Stop Apologizing & hearing her speak at a conference I'll be attending in July.
Do you listen to/read personal development/self-help books? If so, what are some of your favorites? I'm always looking for more to add to my list! Podcasts welcome too!
