Books have a wonderful ability to transport the reader, to take you away to other worlds and into the imagination. It's magical. You can enjoy an audiobook when you are on the move and your hands are busy, and just as easily sitting back with your eyes closed.
We keep a list of new audiobooks on the library catalog New, Best & Fun page. A Week In Winter, Maeve Binchy's final novel, is about a group of strangers brought together in a country inn. Suspect by Robert Crais puts a German shepherd war veteran at the center of his LA based crime fiction. The Power Trip by Jackie Collins brings a cast of celebrity characters together on a luxury yacht for what turns out to be a not-so-fun voyage. On the non-fiction side, Anne Applebaum's highly praised Iron Curtain: The crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956 and Noam Chomsky's Power Systems: Conversations on global democratic uprisings and the new challenges to U.S. empire should please the political junkies. Or if you prefer, Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels shares Slim For Life: My insider secrets to simple, fast, and lasting weight loss. Really, there's something for everybody.
Use the list to find audiobooks you will enjoy. To simplify catalog searches for audiobooks, add "spoken word" to a general keyword search term. For example, thriller, spoken word. Check it out!
