During the holidays my days seem to be so packed full that sometimes I feel like I’m going to miss out on the elements of the holiday season I love most. One of which is reading. Something you might not know about me is that I’m someone who likes to multitask. If there are two things that can be accomplished at one time, I will take that option, always! It just makes sense when our world seems overwhelmingly busy to add two tasks together. One of my favorite things is to knit and listen to an audiobook. Lately, I find myself knitting less and doing all sorts of other tasks while devouring holiday read after holiday read. Holiday audiobooks get me in the spirit of the season and listening to them brings an added element, I can let myself escape in a way I wouldnâ€™t be able to do while reading the text. Here are some of my favorite audiobooks to listen to this season while I check items off my to do list.
