I ended up listening to fewer books in May than I did in every month except March. I managed to get through 26 books this last month, including two complete series. These are the Magic 2.0 series as well as the Harry Potter Series. Out of the 26 titles that I listened to, five of them, or 19.2%, were first time listens.
Typically, I provide these lists just for mere information. However, I am going to make a recommendation for a title, and that is “A Shorty History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson. The reason I recommend this title is that it is a very readable, or even listenable, title that provides a great overview of history, including how the universe was formed, notable people throughout history, as well as notable points throughout history. All of this is appropriate for all audiences and you do not need to be a scientist to read the material. The book really is for the general audiences and well worth the listen. I am sure that I have listened to the book at least 10 times now and I will probably listen to it again at some point in the future.
I can almost guarantee that I will not get nearly as many titles listened to in June, July, and August, as in other months. The summer is typically when I work on my books covering Apple’s new operating systems.
