robotproletarietLess than a year ago the guys over at Realm and Sands came out with the “pilot episode” of their serial, Robot Proletariat. They said it was basically Downtown Abbey with robots.

But it was so much more than that.

The first episode of this serial had me hooked and as soon as they released the entire book, or season as they call it, I bought the Kindle version. That book has been sitting on my to be read list ever since. I am at the point where I need to actually stop myself from buying books because I have more unread books than read books.

But this tale of robot uprising was told from a unique perspective, that of the robots. I was dying to find out what happened to the robots and the humans in this story.

Then, a couple of weeks ago, I got the opportunity to receive a free audiobook of the novel in exchange for an honest review.

I jumped at that chance.

Besides a few podcasts of books I never really got into the audiobook market. It was not because I did not want to. I remember seeing audiobooks when I was a kid and thinking, “I can have someone read them to me instead of reading them myself?” But back then the cost of audiobooks did not fit the budget of a teenager without a job.

Even today the cost of some audiobooks are still a little high, and I would rather sit and read to myself then spend a few extra dollars to have someone read to me.

But this is a game changer.

With the audiobook, and the app on my phone I was able to listen while driving to and from work and while out for my runs. Another lesson from this is that having a book read to you while on a long run can be a great thing.

So I listened to the book. I gave it the review. 5 stars by the way.

And now I am searching through my to be read list to find other books that I can listen to while running and driving.

Audiobooks will really help me catch up on my reading.

Now if only I had a robot to do everything else for me.
