Day 3: Audio Books

Most days driving home from work it will take me about 40-45 min to get home. Today it took me almost an hour. :( I normally listen to the radio, but it seems like I will go through about 6 or 7 stations and none of them will be playing anything that I want to listen too. Someone recently mentioned listening to audio books, since I drive so far and I realized that the concept had never even crossed my mind.

When I opened my library card, I figured I would give the audio books a try. The Nest's book club had The Outsiders, listed as the book for November and the library had it on audio, so I checked it out. The Outsiders is a shorter book since it is Young Adult fiction, but with the amount of time I sit in the car, I flew through it.

It was great! After finishing the Outsiders, I started looking into other audio books the library had. It's been tough finding them through the library's search function online as you need a title, but I have been able to find a couple. I received my email notification from the library today, stating that Wuthering Heights was ready for me to pick up! I have been oh so patient while waiting for it to be turned in. Hopefully, tomorrow I will have time to go pick it up!

So, if you spend lots of time in the car, I definitely recommend looking into listening to books on audio!

I love audiobooks for in my car. Some of the ones I've enjoyed a lot: The Historian, Harry Potter, The Host, The Time Traveler's Wife. You have to be careful, some books are just horribly read... but the good ones can be amazing.

I have The Great Gatsby on audio, and need to try it out. I am afraid I will tune out.
