Tip Description:


Many book titles are available as audio books. In most cases, these audio books are read by actors who help bring the books to life. If you find yourself tired of reading books, an audio book is an alternative way to get the same information. While you listen, you can take notes, exercise, or do other things that don’t require your full attention. These books are available on iTunes, CDs, and other platforms.
