Apologies for not getting to this earlier but the monthly free download from ChristianAudio.com is Kingdom Woman by Tony Evans and Chrystal Evans Hurst. The book is summarized thusly:
In Kingdom Woman, Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, remind women of their calling from God to be free, delivered, healed, and hopeful. The authors bring insight that encourages women to correct distorted perceptions and understand who they really are in Christ. A kingdom woman is called and empowered to live a life of victory through Christ!

The 2017 Audio Publishers Association’s Audie Award nominees were announced earlier today. I usually don’t care much about awards and don’t let what I watch or listen to be decided but what is or is not nominated for an award. But I am always interested in the Audie nominations and this year was no different.
You can see all of the nominated titles in 26 categories plus find reviews and sound clips by clicking here.
In November of last year, I started thinking about things I would like to accomplish or do differently in 2017. I started to think about the way I was spending money particularly when it came to entertainment related purchases. That is when I decided to cut my cable down to the bare minimum and slash my SiriusXM package down to just the music channels. Those two things alone saved me about $110 a month.
Mind you, I didn’t do it because I was in financial distress or anything. I just felt like I could get more out of the money that I was spending if I did things a little different. So I sat down with a spreadsheet and ran some numbers and came up with a plan for 2017.
We reside comfortably in the information age. And quite frankly, more often than not, the too much information age. It is true that even for topics that we are really interested in following there can be too much to keep up with and it can be hard to prioritize what is most important to you and what you can let pass by unnoticed.

I don’t typically use Vudu to purchase or rent movies or TV shows. I’m more of an Amazon or especially iTunes kind of guy mostly for convenience purposes. However, 20% off your next purchase or rental is too good for even me to pass up.

The folks over at Tantor Audio are offering a free download of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and narrated by Simon Prebble. On an interesting note, at least to me, this book was apparently released on Jan. 18, 2010 which means the anniversary is tomorrow.
While browsing my Facebook feed today, I came across this article from Publisher’s Weekly which discusses the Audiobook industry in 2017. In short, continued growth is expected both in sales and volume of product available. Continue reading →
Just like I did with my 2015 Year in Books post, I wanted to share with all of my readers what I read in 2016. I’ve actually been thinking about this post for months and how best to do it. I thought I could list every book I read this year but realized that if you really cared that much, all you needed to do was look at this shelf on my Goodreads Profile. That way, if you don’t care enough I’ve saved you a lot of scrolling and I’ve saved myself a lot of linking.
If you are off of work today and or stuck inside because of the weather there are a lot of things you could do. You could reduce your Netflix cue a bit or you could listen to an audiobook. You could do less fun things like household chors but I’m not about to write a blog post on why you should do chors. Even if I did spend part of Christmas doing my dishes. Anyway, I have another suggestion if you’re actually bored enough to listen to me talk. You can listen to my interview on the Talking Audiobooks podcast.
