It looks like Elizabeth LaBan officially broke my reading slump at the very end of December with The Restaurant Critic’s Wife, and I’ve been going strong all January. I read 2,740 pages this month: 10 books evenly split between fiction and nonfiction. Amy Poehler’s Yes Please was definitely my favorite (review coming later this week).
This month I signed up for a free trial of TuneIn‘s Premium subscription. I’ve given Audible and Scribd trial runs recently, but quickly got frustrated with their “credits” systems and didn’t stick with either one. TuneIn is an $8 a month all-you-can-hear audiobook buffet! The UI is a little clunky, and it only seems to remember your place in the audiobook if you don’t navigate away to listen to anything else they offer, but I really like the price and the selection (I listened to both Yes Please and Between the World and Me on TuneIn). I’m going to keep the subscription for a while.
2016 seems to be off to a great start!
