Audio books are a great way to pass the time, especially when doing something time consuming and repetitive like driving across the country, running on a treadmill or painting and improving your home. In fact, what better way is there to enhance a boring project like remodeling a bath, weeding, vacuuming or doing dishes other than to figure out a way to be entertained by it in some way. Choosing a book that you can relate to, make you laugh, or share a few tips is just the thing you need the next time you are presented with a task that requires lots of motivation and time! Here are some of my favorite home improvement/Do-it-Yourself/real estate books that are sure to help pass the time.
Be sure to check with your local library to see if they have a free online audio book program or mobile app to make streaming audios book more convenient and portable!
