      @Shirsha Lol. Glad to see you’re back blogging

  2. Thanks for linking to my post! I’m off now to go check out those favorite audiobooks for trips!

  3. Great list, as always! I’m always impressed that you find the time to gather together such interesting links!

    If I am listening to an audio and realize there are illustrations or something else visual, then i will also get the paper book from the library to read along. Brown Girl Dreaming comes to mind – it was AMAZING on audio, read by the author, but I also wanted to see how the verse looked on the page.

    My husband and I recently listened to A Woman in the Window on audio on our latest road trip – it was perfect – suspenseful & compelling! Even my husband didn’t get bored with it 🙂

    Have a great week!
