I have been getting a subsidized Audible membership via a credit card, but that will soon end. My general disinterest in listening to spoken word is well established, but free is/was free. I have found I do better with some non-fiction. I have 6 Audible credits I need to use to buy books before I cancel. Looking for recommendations especially in these areas:
Also just any good book you particularly loved in audio form, but know that I don't like fiction when the reader goes all in on voices and accents, which I think is a minority opinion.
- History especially of the big sweeping kind. The more specific it is the more I lose when my mind inevitably wanders which is my main problem with podcasts and audiobooks. So an overview of Viking conquests over centuries, or ancient Persia or Chinese empires or early medieval Europe or pre-colonialism Africa is better than some specific civil war or the reign and policies of a single ruler or brief period. I'm open to any time or place.
- Soccer. But not strategy or tactics. That would also get lost to me on audio. But stories about the history of the game, or of some team - anywhere really - or soccer in [pick any country or region], or soccer and culture treatments.
same have credit….not sure if you will be into it… but would recommend Circe.
Just finished it was pretty good. It’s a novel.
