Over 30 Audio Autobiography Books Read by the Author, And Counting…

I have been obsessed with Audio books lately and have been burning through A LOT of them these days. My focus is on Audio Autobiography Books read by the Author. There is just something so nice about hearing a book about someones life read by the author themselves. In my opinion the heart of the book comes through so much better this way!

How I Listen?

I have a subscription to Audible as well as an app called Libby that my library uses.

Between these two apps I have managed to listen to PA-LENTY of lighthearted biographies read by the author themselves.

Sidenote: A small few of these may not qualify as Autobiographies but they kinda fit so I added them here anyways…
