One of the wisest purchases I have ever made happens to be my monthly subscription to Audible (Amazon’s audiobook distributor). I love books. The gym? Not so much. So I married the two by listening to books while working out. My motivation has since gone up. Simple but true.
For Thanksgiving, Audible gave away a free download of Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz. I do not care too much for the movie . . . but free is free. So I gave it a listen. And I am glad that I did. I have to say that the book is much more descriptive and detailed than the musical. And the storyline has far more suspense and purpose.
My favorite quote happened to be when one of the characters so wisely suggests, “How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain? I don’t know, but some people without brains do an awful lot of talking.”
Give the Oz a quick read (or a listen).
