I’ve never finished an Audiobook before. I think I’m only 17% done with Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng, and I don’t know if I’ll ever finish it. I think I like reading books better than listening to them. Maybe if I read them and listened at the same time, that would be better. Then again, books are already expensive half of the time, and Audiobooks, are even MORE expensive.
I only own 3 Audiobooks, and that is only because I got them for free. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to buy an Audiobook. Even if it were extra cheap, I just don’t think I’d listen to them. Well, if it is read by the person who wrote the book, like Amy Poehler, I would probably listen to it. I don have Yes Please on Audiobook, and I do plan on listening to it…Hopefully sometime early next year. We’ll see… 🙂
So I guess this will just be my Top 3 Audiobooks.
The Audiobooks I own are:
1.) Yes Please by Amy Poehler.
2.) Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
3.) A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab.

I have the same problem as well. I’m not sure if your library will have it or not but if it uses overdrive for digital then you might have access to some audio books through it. Here’s my T5W: http://readingwithwrin.blogspot.com/2015/12/audiobooks-i-want-to-listen-to-t5w.html
I know what you mean about audiobooks – for me the price and time elements are something that mean I always put off getting an audiobook. It just takes SO long to “read” an audiobook compared to a physical copy (even if you do speed up the narration) and they’re so much more expensive – after all you can’t exactly pick up a used audiobook in the same way you can most books! 😛
I think the generally accepted wisdom is that memoirs such as Yes Please are even better when heard due to the storytelling quality of comedians’ memoirs though, so I hope you enjoy it when you get around to “reading” it.
Another problem with speeding up the audiobook, is the person starts to sound robotic! 😐
Yes Please is probably my favorite audiobook I have ever listened to. I love all the cameos
Yeah I’ve heard some good things about it so I am excited to listen to it! 😀
