Readable Solutions Highlights for June 2024

June 15, 2024 | by Amy Cantin, Manager - Content Development

“Even most of those who really never have time to read a book usually have more than enough time to listen to one.” 


― -Mokokoma Mokhonoana


Are you tired of feeling like you don't have enough time in the day to read that book that's been sitting on your nightstand, collecting dust for months? Do you find yourself zoning out during your commute or while doing household chores? Audiobook Month is here to transform the way you consume information and entertainment! 

Audiobooks aren't just a way to pass the time; they are a gateway to a wealth of knowledge and entertainment. With audiobooks, you can keep up with the latest industry trends, learn new skills, and discover new perspectives. And the best part? You can do it all while you're on the go.

One of the most significant benefits of audiobooks is that they allow you to do multiple things at once. You can listen to a book while you're driving or on the train, on the elliptical machine, or doing household chores. This means that you can make the most of your time and accomplish more throughout the day.

Not only do audiobooks offer convenience and flexibility, but they also offer a unique way to improve your listening skills. By listening to professional narrators, you can learn how to communicate more effectively, improve your public speaking abilities, and enhance your interpersonal skills.

An additional benefit of audiobooks is the variety of genres and titles available. Whether you're interested in self-help, business, history, or fiction, there's an audiobook out there for you. And with the rise of digital audiobooks, you can access thousands of titles instantly and listen to them on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. For instance, check out the Audiobook Month bookshelf in our OFF THE SHELF book club, featuring Skillsoft's most popular audiobooks for 2024.

You may just find that it's the perfect way to stay informed, entertained, and inspired on the go. Ready to get started?
