Nearly all of the latest books your friends have been talking about are available on audio. Some are full-scale productions with multiple polished actors and celebrities contributing their voice talent. Catch up on a variety of genres in fiction and non-fiction and eliminate the agony of gridlock. There are countless reasons to try an audiobook, but here are some ways your commute can be more productive:
• Laugh out loud! It’s one thing to read Tina Fey’s hilarious Bossypants, but listening to her hysterical delivery with just the right tone and inflection is the ultimate experience!
• Decipher delectable dialects. Who could forget the brilliant Southern drawls of the ladies of Kathryn Stockett’s The Help brought to life by Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, Octavia Spencer and Cassandra Campbell? Audiobooks transform your surroundings instantly with descriptive ear candy.
• Immerse yourself in educational escapes. Audiobooks help commuters learn a new language, comprehend complex concepts and delve into American history. Discover beloved First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s innermost thoughts in her own
words in Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy.
• Drive on the edge of your seat. The world’s best narrators pull you into thrilling storylines from best selling authors like Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly and James Patterson that will have you gripping the steering wheel with anticipation!
• Just push play! Aside from the ease of popping a CD in, new iPod jacks and mp3 player adapters are now standard car accessories, making downloaded audiobooks also more car-accessible than ever before.
“When a commuter makes an audiobook their standard travelling companion, they easily turn a negative situation into a positively entertaining and productive experience. Audiobooks are the perfect way to decompress mentally and maximize productivity. Whether it’s the morning or evening commute, finding the right audiobook for you will reduce stress and give you a fresh perspective on time spent in the car,” said Michele Cobb, APA President.
