Walking the treadmill, tidying the closets, the drive to the Cities and so many other activities can be improved with an audiobook. A list of new audiobooks at Great River Regional Library is kept on the New, Best & Fun page (tabbed from the catalog) with something for every kind of reader.
The current list includes a book about life in baseball's minor leagues, "Where Nobody Knows Your Name," by John Feinstein, and other nonfiction titles such as "The Future Of The Mind" by Michio Kaku and "Operation Paperclip: The secret intelligence program to bring Nazi scientists to America" by Annie Jacobsen. On the fiction side there's Alice Hoffman's "The Museum Of Extraordinary Things," about a young woman who performs as a mermaid in the family's Coney Island boardwalk freak show, Nora Roberts's "Wild At Heart," and a raft of selections by other well known authors.
To simplify catalog searches for audiobooks, add "spoken word" to a general keyword search term. For example, mystery, spoken word. Check it out!
