Do you prefer listening to books? Audiobooks are a great way to chill and immerse in a story in the summer. Our top 5 reasons to try audiobooks:

  1. You can have your entire library in your pocket when you go running or to the beach.
  2. You won't look like a total nerd with a backpack of books among music lovers with earphones.
  3. You will be able to pronounce the most difficult words correctly (stop sounding like Harry Potter's Victor Krum trying to please Hermione).
  4. You have an excuse to ask for the latest AirPods for your birthday.
  5. You can read with your eyes closed. Just don't try that while driving.
