“Hear the Word” Special!

esvheartheword2011Wanted to let all of you know that there is currently a special going on at Christian Audio, which is having its twice-yearly mega sale, where most books are 95% off! Included in that is the ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible, which is available for just $7.49.

Pastor Jonathan from Gracepoint Berkeley church has a mini-testimonial about using the audio Bible: “Whenever I read long chunks of the Bible, I listen to the audio.  It helps me keep focused, underline, circle, etc.”

You can check out this deal, as well as many others on Christian audiobooks.

Have any of you tried this particular version? If not, which audio Bible do you use?

Reading Snapshots: Car Reading Edition

Not to be outdone by little Juliet, 10-month old Hudson’s getting into the game! He wins for the youngest reader featured thus far, and I think Gracepoint Riverside church is throwing its hat in the ring for the “most pictures featuring kiddos reading” award.

Awards aside, books are a great way for kiddos of all ages to make use of time during car rides short or long. Nowadays many cars have screens so you can watch movies while on the road, but so long as you don’t get carsick, how about read a book instead? And if you do get carsick, or want some family time, how about listening to an audiobook together? I’ve heard from different kiddos that they loved listening to The Chronicles of Narnia or other books with their families. And it’s not just for kiddos! In fact, this past weekend, I listened to A Little Princess with Sarah, Elise, Michelle, and Kristen on the way up from LA.

Do you have any road trip reading memories? Did you listen to any audiobooks driving to and from Thanksgiving destinations? Creativity, Inc, perhaps? 🙂
