I love listening to audiobooks when I'm taking a nap, as it relaxes me, sort of like a meditation thing.

I have a few audiobooks, although some I want aren't available ( :roll: ). But anyway, I'm trying to find one that's easy to listen to. I'm not into fantasy or superheroes or complicated romance or sex. I like things that are about everyday life that most people experience.

I'm not a fact person but I do like listening to facts when I'm falling asleep. But I don't like the type of facts like "a man in China named Yawoo Woo planted a million trees for a charity aid" or something like that. I prefer facts that concern everybody, like "there are more stars in the solar system than grains of sand on every beach" or "your stomach has enough acid to burn through a piece of metal" or something like that. Do you know what I mean?

Also I like an audiobook that lasts for more than 5 hours, so that it will last me a few naps. It's no good paying for an audiobook that only lasts 50 minutes. I like children's audiobooks, for the sake of simplicity, but usually they're too short or too silly.
I love the Wimpy Kid books but you can only get ones read by Dan Russell on Audible, and he's not as good as Ramon D'Acampo, which you can only find on YouTube but then that takes up my data usage (my wifi signal won't reach my bedroom for some reason).

Do you have any suggestions that could help me find audiobooks that I want?

You can probably get audiobooks through Amazon Kindle.

If you're ever in a mood for good horror, I suggest stuff written by that guy, Bill Link!
