Whispersync for Voice ~ Audible ~ Kindle

I love to read but with my busy lifestyle ~I seemed to never really have the time.  I wanted to share with everyone a service that Amazon offers that allows me to read and listen to the same book. 

Whispersync for Voice  allows you to switch back and forth between reading a Kindle book and listening to the companion Audible audiobook without losing your place.
You can keep the story going on the book on your Kindle and enjoy listening to your book on Whispersync.
 
I am currently reading The McCarthys of Gansett Island Series by Marie Force.
Chance for Love book on Amazon cost $2.99. For an additional $1.99 I can add audible by paying for Whispersync.  So for $4.98 I have a romance novel that I can read and also listen on audible.
This works great for me - I listen in the Jeep - read at the doctor office - listen while walking - read while sitting comfy under a warm blanket while my hubby watches TV. 
Using Whispersync for Voice  I can listen and read making enjoying a good book so much more doable for me.
I belong to Amazon Prime and Audible.  
With Amazon Prime I get all the great benefits FREE SHIPPING + so much more. 

Audible Membership gives me great prices on audible books that are not on Whispersync - each month I get one book for only the cost of membership. 
My goal for 2015 is to read 52 books - using Amazon Kindle - Whipersync and Audible I will definitely meet that goal ~ I might even double it. Reading is easy and fun using the three services. Reading now fits into my busy lifestyle! Since January 1st, 2015 I have read/listened to 25 books. I  designed a  2015 Book List page where I am listing each book I have read/listened with links to the book. 

I have noticed a trend - Cold Wisconsin Winters make me want to read/listen to  Romance Novels! Hummm...Wonder what that means? I might have to ask my hubby that question!! :) 


I was not compensated in anyway for posting about Amazon Prime - Whipersync or Audible. I posted to let my readers know of a great way to include reading into their lifestyle.

  8. I LOVE audiobooks! I always feel guilty sitting down to read a book when there are so many household chores that need to be done, but cooking or cleaning while listening to an audio book is the perfect combination of fun and work!

  13. I have never listened to an Audio book but I think I should consider it! I'm so busy I have not time to read so this is for certain something I'd love to look into to.

  14. That is pretty darn cool! I rarely listen to audio books since I stopped commuting. It might be a good thing to do while cleaning my house.

  16. I'm a reader but I've never actually tried audio books. There's something special about curling up with a good book and the end of a long day but I'll try this, too!

  28. What a great idea. You could get way more read/listened to that way.

  29. I do this all the time. When I read and have to go do dinner or laundry, it is nice to be able to have the book read to me and then pick up the reading for myself later.

  31. I love that you can switch back and forth without losing your place. I need to get my Kindle out and try this. I also have a 52 book goal for this year, and I am really coming up short so far!

  35. I love to listen to my books in the car. I often have to drive long distance. It is a great way to pass the time.

  36. Reading is my 'me' time and my 'hobby.' As a published author/fiction writer reading is my creative outlet. Much like artists and other creative minds seek out there creatives in their markets. I have tried a few times to listen to audio books and it never seems to work out in my favor. Once in a while I will listen to something while I work, but then I find I get too distracted. LOL

  37. Wow this is a very cool app! My daughter has a kindle and would love this!
