In this episode, Tamara and feature cohost Casey share tons of resources on where you can find both free and discounted books, ebooks, and audiobooks! They also share a few tricks to make the most out of your digital library holds and the Scribd app!
You've got less than two weeks to get your Mother's Day gift sorted out. I'm here to help you out this year. If your Mom is anything like mines, it gets harder and harder to impress her every year. I've resorted to becoming really creative and looking for gifts that aren't the obvious ones. A gift that shows that I know what she likes, but are also really unique and fun. Gifts I know won't sit on a shelf collecting dust. The gifts ideas I'm sharing this year perfect for the Nerdy or Crafty Mom! She might be a little of both (I know I am), so take full advantage of these ideas and consider a few items for a gift. Best yet, all of these recommendations are available on Amazon, so you can order and have them delivered in plenty of time!

The Nerdy Mom
If your Mom enjoys reading, games. watching TV, or cool mugs and shirts, your mom is the Nerdy Mom! Check out these ideas for her.
From bookish t-shirts to mugs with tons of nerd worthy themes, a lot of options are available. I personally enjoy a good snarky t-shirt! My mom gets a kick out of them She never buys one for herself, but she absolutely wear them. ;)
#Audiobook lovers, you'll want to check this out!! I hope you enjoy my review of the Sudio Fem Earbuds. This is NOT a sponsored video. I received a pair in exchange for an honest review. Sudio is from Stockholm, Sweden. They make several styles of earbuds, perfect for audiobook and podcast listening. Check them out if you want to try a pair for yourself!
-These earbuds are perfect for audiobook and podcast listening (especially the Shelf Addiction Podcast). They also work well with the Nintendo Switch Lite (with a Bluetooth adaptor).
-Once you get these paired, they stay in sync! The connection never dropped once.
-Lots of ear fitment options. Thanks to the smallest set, the buds actually stay in my ear.
-Good battery life. I was able to listen for several hours of audio off and on all day.
-Unfortunately, these aren't the optimal earbuds if you like listening to music with a lot of bass.
Bottom line, I recommend these headphones for daily use. Perfect for those that need a reliable set of headphones without the high price tag.
The SHELFADDICTION code normally gives 15% on all items.
During Black Friday, they have a special offer for a 25% discount. With my code, you can get an additional 10% discount. Please check the Sudio website for the current offer.
