Binge Booking

For the last month I've been wanting to write a post about my new found obsession with audio books.  It wasn't until a few minutes ago that I saw the title to a Huffington Post article ("Stop Binge-Watching and Start Binge-Reading") that I knew I had the perfect title for the post and just decided to make the time and write it!
