Great Gift: Free mp3 player when you join audible

There’s this guy in my neighborhood  – a very well-read fellow he is – but he actually reads while he hikes.

These trails of ours at 9,500 feet in the Colorado Rockies – they are crazy with rocks, icy spots, tree roots, not to mention the coyotes and the bears and the pumas.

Each time I see him, balancing his hardback book in his jostling hands, I want to say “Go! Get thee an mp3 player and a subscription to audible.”

I want to say this, but he doesn’t look up. If he were to do so, I would add that, if he were ever going to splurge on an audible subscription, now is a very, very good time to do it.

Just about every year, right around the holidays, audible sends out this great little package so you can get someone an mp3 player along with a monthly subscription. If you know anyone who would enjoy this kind of thing, it’s a great deal.

Audible allows you to experience some really great audiobook productions while you do the things that you kind of wish you weren’t doing: jogging, doing the dishes, shoveling snow, scrubbing the walls after your son wipes his nose on them. (What, you don’t have that problem)?
