I found my favorite books from childhood here and found a voice outside of my own to read the words I had once enjoyed so much inside my own head now inside my ear read to me and it gave me a since of childhood once again a sense of innocence that has long ago left me but some how found its way back to me if only for a hour here or there that I thought had long sense been lost....it gave me hope that even tho I had grown and now work 13 hour days to provide my kids with a life much better than my own growing up that on my long lonely drives I could once again find the boy that wanted nothing more to drift away into his imagination to escape the horror of his life with a stolen library book read under a stolen flash light hoping not to be caught still existed inside me...even tho now I have a beautiful wife two wonderful kids a house I owned and brand new cars in the drive way to once again have that fleeting moment of childhood freedom spring up inside me if only for a moment was such a wonderful thing....so in sort I think I love this app more than any on my phone or tv or Xbox for that matter and as I have only got 1 of the 50 books from my childhood I can only imagine how much my fondness will grow in the coming months...so if I may say so get it and thank me later....
The best book I’ve read in 10 years! I thought it would highlight Hillbilly stereotypes and be entertaining, and humorous. Kind of like watching the a reality show on hillbillies who make moonshine. While it was at times all those things, it also highlights the psychological, and socio-economic roots of hillbilly identity and culture, as well as the author’s realistic vision for making a difference. Well done!
Thank you J.D for telling my story! It connected so many dots for me about my own identity and why my own family was the way it was...is the way it is. There were numerous times listening when I thought, “I thought I was the only one who thought that way!” I grew up in the foothills of NC. My father grew up in the NC Mountains during the Great Depression. I left home for a career in the military right after I turned 18 - the first from my family to graduate from college. While no longer in NC, I both identify with hillbilly culture but have changed some of the patterns that would have been detrimental to my own sons. I truly believe that was only possible by my leaving home for the Military. I will share it with my adult sons so they can understand a part of their roots, the legacy of which they are a part.
The best thing since sliced bread
Audible has revolutionized my reading game. Two years ago, I read maybe a handful of books. Now, I’m listening to more than 2 books a month! I honestly don’t have the patience or time to read. Like most millennials or those with mild forms of ADHD, I’m easily distracted and have too many things to do at once, but audible solves that problem by letting me do whatever I want such as cook/clean/drive while listening to a book.
Whether I want to learn or be entertained, I can do so with audible. I was hesistant at first about paying a subscription to listen to books and thought it was cheating myself from reading and learning new information and words but it has actually enhanced my life in many ways. I’ve discovered many things through stories and found that the genre I enjoy most are autobiographies spoken by the authors themselves (like Bryan Cranston’s A Life in Parts as well as Mosher Kasher’s Kasher in The Rye and Tina Fey’s Bossypants). Give audible a chance! It’s free for the first month and you won’t regret it!!! (you might even be hooked...like me! :)) A great app to catch up on your neverending booklist and a great avenue to learn!
