I have wanted to compile a list of my favorite books for some time now. About a two years ago I promised myself to get back into reading, however with my on-the-go farm life and mom life I found it nearly impossible to sit long enough and finish a chapter. I found Audible and the whole game changed! Audible is an app that allows you to download books on audio and listen to them, this is great for me because when I am working in the tractor or milking by myself I can dive deep into the fictional world of my novels.

CURRENTLY I have listen to well over 50 audio books and my Audible cloud is literally full of really amazing novels. What I love most about Audible is the customer service that comes with this Amazon company, the selection of titles is the largest AND if you are new to audible you get a free-trial with your first book being free! If you’ve used Audible and love it like I do, be the sunshine in someones day, get them and a gift membership by clicking the link below <3Audible Gift Memberships
THEN Covid_19 hit the United States in March and suddenly I have two daughters working on their reading logs for school from home (which they may not be able to turn in to their teachers because our return to school date keeps getting pushed back) and I thought maybe I should pull out some of those paperback novels I never got around to finishing. These were some older titles like “Water for Elephants” and “The Time Travelers Wife” both of which I swore I would read before watching the movies and therefore have NEVER watched the movies… if you’ve seen them, were they good?
This library of my favorite novels is on-going, but it begins during the Stay-In-Place quarantine of 2020 and I will continue to update it throughout the year. Basically, stay tuned for more.
Note: please leave a comment with some of your favorite titles!
Also note: since the libraries are closed would anyone be interested in a book style PenPal club? I would gladly organize it!

Have you read any of these and if so what did you think of them? Do we have the same taste in books? I totally, completely, always judge a book by its cover AND I know that I shouldn’t but, lets be honest, those all have really intriguing covers and I love them! Happy reading and stay safe at home with a good book during this virus. Xo, Nicole
