Books wrapped by headphones

How to consume books while hiking, driving, or washing dishes. Hint: Audiobooks.

The thing is, as much as I enjoy reading paper books and also books in my kindle, it’s nearly impossible and highly irresponsible to do it while walking, washing dishes, or driving, it really isn’t safe. Now, I’ve known about Audible for a while, but for some reason, just never tried it until recently.

These are the things I’ve tried up until today to get more people to back my campaign: Emailed my entire email list. Twice. Have tweeted multiple times from different accounts about the campaign.

Have posted the video, book cover and excerpts from my new book multiple…

Kickstarter: Day 3

I started my first campaign on Wednesday, July 1st, 2015. So far I have 3 backers, one of them is my wife, the second is a friend and previous co-worker and the third one someone I don’t know.
