Genuine Driven Women read lots of books, and I’d like to recommend an excellent way for you to dramatically increase the number of books you are able to read each month:  which is… Listening to audiobooks through If you’d like to download a free audiobook, go to  

 I used to think that reading books meant sitting still and finding quiet time to read, which is a very enjoyable experience for a lot of people.  The only problem is that back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, I was a busy single mom, serving in the US Navy, and during some of that time I was also working on my Bachelor and Master degrees, so by the time I had an opportunity to sit still and read what I wanted to read, I was too exhausted to read.  I still have that problem today. Between working a demanding full-time job, quality time with my family, and I running the Genuine Driven Women brand of businesses with my spare time. I still have very little time to still and read. Even so -- on average, over the last 15 years, I have found the time to read about one book every single week.  How did I do this? It was because I discovered and became a member in the summer of 2003.  

I’d like to introduce you to today, so you can benefit from the largest Audiobook library in the world.  Audible has a special offer for the listeners of the Genuine Driven Women podcast, they are offering a FREE audiobook download with a free 30-day trial to give you the opportunity to check out their service. 

If you are a Genuine Driven Women, and you want to read one of the best books to help get your financial world under control, I recommend “Total Money Makeover” by Dave Ramsey.  

There's one sure way to whip your finances into shape, and that's with The Total Money Makeover. It's the simplest, most straightforward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it's based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies. You'll be exercising your financial strength every day and quickly freeing yourself of worry, stress, and debt. Read this book, it changed my life and I know it can change yours too.

If you are interested in Fiction books, has thousands of beautifully narrated fiction books, that will take your mind to places and lives that seem so real, you will feel like you’ve been completely immersed in a new and interesting culture. One of the best examples of this experience can be found in the audiobook version of “The Secret Life of Bees,” written by Sue Kidd Monk and narrated by Jenna Lamia.  

This novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

When Lily's fierce-hearted "stand-in mother", Rosaleen, insults three of the town's fiercest racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina - a town that holds the secret to her mother's past.

There, they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce Lily to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household.

This is a remarkable story about divine female power and the transforming power of love - a story that women will share and pass on to their daughters for years to come.

You can get either one of these books for free or choose another book you would enjoy from the largest selection of audiobooks in the world.  Audible allows you to keep your books, even if you cancel.
