Audiobooks for the Road?

Going on a road trip? Or just want to “zone out” in a crowd? If so, NPR’s Morning Edition on 12/31/12 interviewed Robin Whitten, editor and founder of AudioFile magazine. She gave a good list of selections based on the narrators she thinks are great (In my opinion, a book becomes even better with a good narrator.) Here’s her list of CD titles available to be interloaned by KDL cardholders:

 

Fiction:

 For the family road trip:
Toothiana by William Joyce from the Guardians of Childhood series, narrated by Gerard Doyle

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, narrated by Edoardo Ballerini

Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, narrated by Simon Vance

 

Nonfiction and Culture:

Arguably by Christopher Hitchens, narrated by Simon Prebble

Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham, narrated by Edward Herrmann

 

Mystery and Suspense:

An American Spy by Olen Steinhauer, narrated by David Pittu

Now you have a perfect excuse to use those new Christmas headphones!
