I could not live without audiobooks. That may sound melodramatic, but it’s true. Listening to books saves my sanity on a daily basis: on my commute (no annoying songs, commercials or constant station switching plus less road rage), while washing dishes or folding laundry and while exercising. Also, since I have kids, my print reading has gone down dramatically, so I count on listening to books to keep up with all of my favorite authors. I especially like listening to books set in foreign locales, so that I know how to pronounce names and places correctly.
A Carrion Death by Michael Stanley
A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken: From the Files of Vish Puri, India's most private investigator by Tarquin Hall
WFPL has several methods for listening to books: on CD, on Playaway and from our digital media catalog, Overdrive. If you can’t find the title you want here, we’re always happy to request it from another library.
Following are some of the books I’ve listened to recently:
The Ashford Affair by Lauren Willig
Die Trying by Lee Child
Fever by Mary Beth Keane
Written by Reference Librarian Pauli.
