So you've never listened to an audiobook before? Now is the time. I first broke down and listened to my initial audiobook when I was making a series of long car rides and needed something to break up the monotony. It took just one, and now I find myself listening every time I am in the car, cleaning, or cooking. It makes time go by so much faster during a mundane task. Everyone who has listened to an audiobook in the car has found themselves at their destination and still sitting listening because they are at "a good part". This month I would like to suggest to you a few audiobooks that I would recommend for the uninitiated.
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky
Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs
On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan
These titles are available on CD, Playaway and as digital audiobooks.
