Listening to audiobooks while I exercise is one of my favorite things and makes exercising so much more fun.  Here are 5 I’ve read lately.

1. As You Wish

If you’re a Princess Bride fan,  you will LOVE this book. It’s all about the making of The Princess Bride movie, written and narrated by Cary Elwes, who played Wesley.

Learning about the actors, the mishaps, and other adventures from making the movie is so fun. It’s laugh out loud funny!

2. The Lake House

Kate Morton is one of my favorite authors — she’s written a handful of very fun mystery novels.

Her books are characteristic of a very major plot twist at the end, and this one doesn’t disappoint! It’s well written, clean, and a really great story.

3. The Secrets of Happy Families

I actually listened to this one twice, it was so good! It has clever ideas and interesting stories about how to make your family happier, create a family culture, and be a better and happier parent. Whether your kids are young or older, this is a great read or listen.

4. The Self Driven Child

This book is so, so fantastic, about raising kids who are capable and motivated without nagging. If you’re struggling with young kids or teens, this is a great book with good ideas.

5. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

I’ve heard about this book for years and finally listened to it a few months ago. It has great ideas about personal growth, and how to be more efficient and motivated. If you’re struggling with motivation, this is a fantastic listen.

Tell me a good book you’re reading —  I’d love more recommendations!

    You have shown so many great books! I also read a few of them, now I want to read something with a note of irony. I got this idea after reading https://studyhippo.com/essays-on/irony/ while exploring the concept. I would be glad if you could recommend something for me, thanks!
