There are many of us who are blessed to find ourselves with extra time on our hands.  So, my question for this week is, “What is a favorite audiobook, YouTube channel or podcast that you have been enjoying listening to and what makes it so special?”

` Thank you for taking the time to respond!  Wishing each of you health, safety, and blessings beyond your wildest imaginations.

  1. Thank you for sharing!.. I did purchase a 10″ Fire HD for using audible in the future.. I have a multitude of CD’s that I have recorded and put on small tablet that I have turned into a stereo… I also listen to local PBS radio which plays classics and contemporary… I am open minded to most music (except rap).. I generally listen to easy listening type music, favorite band is either Andre Rieu or James Last, favorite song is “Last Rose of Summer”… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May the love that you give
    Always return to you,
    That family and friends are many
    And always remain true,
    May your mind only know peace
    No suffering or strife,
    May your spirit only know happiness
    On your journey through life.
    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  2. I have been studying English History from Edward the Confessor around 1040 until the end of Richard the Second’s death in 1399, the Plantagenets. Previous to that The Templars, The Norman Invasion and The Crusades. My eyesight is diminishing so I have begun audiobooks. They are expensive through Amazon but worth it. The Veterans Admin. is offering free audio for certain disabilities of which none are mine that’s OK. Do you know of any other’s that may be a little more reasonable?

    • I LOVE that you are spending time studying history……..I am sure talking with you would be so much fun to hear your wealth of knowledge. I have been able to find a lot of history information on YouTube and if the books that you are interested are no longer under copywrite laws, gutenberg.org has TONS of free books that can be printed and I believe you can work with the size so you could print them bigger or view them on your computer and zoom in. I know that most libraries are now closed, but many offer free audiobooks that you can checkout online with your card. I hope this helps……….thank you so very much for stopping by and God bless you for your service to this country.

  3. I’ve been reading so much, lately! I just finished Sylvia Plath’s _The Bell Jar_ which is really amazing, but a bit depressing. Think I’m going to reread _All the Light We Cannot See_ by Anthony Doerr next. It’s so uplifting and one of the most amazing historical fiction stories I’ve ever read. So much insight into people and a great book to get away from everything happening today.

  4. Not much for all those, almost finished my 90 day whole Bible listening. Other than spending time with wifey, and because I drive for a living. I spend a lot of time listening, to my rather small 4000 song music collection. Be blessed!

  5. Extra time???? I’m not sure what that is.Still racing the clock everyday. I see your comments sometimes on Pam Grouts blog and my daughter and I visit her blog and read her book to each other everyday. I also have a play list on YouTube of Hand pan music which I listen to when sewing and another of the Piano Guys for other times. Their song “it’s gonna be ok” is one on my walking playlist too. They help keep me moving. I listen to Ted talks, refresh some of my sewing skills like making a pillowcase burrito style for my daughter’s birthday present. I listen to many audio books depending on what I’m doing at the moment. Dr. Joe Dispenza is a favorite along with cozy mysteries. When I’m pulling weeds, I just listen to bird song. I read a cozy mystery today while I waited for the birthday cupcakes to be done. Life is full no matter the day. I am so very lucky. No extra time. 😉 See you here soon.

    • Oh my goodness, you are one very busy lady and I love it. I find that although I keep busy I am not running my teens everywhere which has freed up a lot of time and to be very honest it has been nice. May I ask which of Pam’s books that you are reading? I have read 3 of her books and enjoyed them very much. I love that you also use YouTube to listen to music….such a blessing. I just started following Dr. Joe Dispenza on Instragram and really enjoy his views, do you have a favorite book of his?
      Thank you so very much for sharing a part of your life here………it sounds amazingly full and I so enjoyed reading about it. 🙂

      • Oh, I do remember the times of running teens around. It was like herding cats. My youngest in now 47 and lives with me to help me out. It helps her too. 😉 Once their brains come back in the mid to late 20’s, they are easier to be around. I think “The Placebo Effect is the most profound and what the other’s are based on. He has a lot of scientific evidence to back him up. I take nothing at face value, questioning EVERYTHING!! I actually have the books in hard copy and audible. I consider them reference books so they are part of my vast library at home.

      • That made me LOL………herding cats, yes stay cats 🙂 wow, 4 in the house and there are times I am going to lose my mind.
        Thank you for the book title, I am going to check it out. I would love to peek into your library…….I bet it is amazing! (can you tell I love, love, love books. 🙂 )

      • Anyone who loves books is a friend of mine. I still have 6 bookcases full after giving so many away and my daughter has 3 stuffed in her room. We won’t discuss how many my son has. He owns a 40′ shipping container for storage in the back yard. Of course there are tools and other things in there too. We wonder whose floor will cave in first. 😉

  6. I’m down a huge health-related rabbit hole right now — listening to a lot of podcasts about vitamin A toxicity being the root of autoimmune disease, MS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. First found out about it through Matt Stone (who I find entertaining, but he can be uncouth and he cusses a lot). It’s a pretty radical theory! But I am finding it fascinating.
    I also find my mind is having a hard time reading things and staying focused — so this morning I listened to audio Bible instead of reading my daily Bible reading. I got WAY more out of it that way. These are definitely: Strange times!! Thank God we have all these wonderful audio options 🙂

    • It is so interesting that you mentioned getting more out of audio at this time, I feel the exact same way! My mind has been wandering a lot more this past month and a half so I have found listening to things results in me getting more out of it then if I was reading.
      Thank you so very much for stopping by and commenting on what you have been enjoying recently, I really appreciate your visit and I hope you and yours are doing ok during these very strange times. God bless you.

  7. Aside from listening to an eclectic mix of music, I’ve been reading a couple of books “Secrets of a Prayer Warrior,” by Derek Prince and “Divine Conspiracy,” by Dallas Willard. My wife and I are looking forward to binging on the latest season of “Bosch” on Amazon this weekend. I’ve checked out a few Kain Ramsay videos on YouTube. He’s interesting. I’m also taking a couple of courses on Udemy. I’ve listened to different podcasts just to get a feel. Not sure if I’ve found one I can’t live without aside from Darrin Rowse’s Problogger. Great post! Thanks for giving me/us something to think about.
