Audio Books are a fun and easy way to squeeze in a book when you just don’t have the time to curl up in a chair. I’ve really taken to them recently. The local Library has an annual sale, which we frequent, taking advantage of the last day ‘bag sales’. Last year we picked up several copies of audio books and have been enjoying them ever since. I ask the children to vote on an audio book anytime we are going on a road trip. Remember that you can also check out audio books from the Library as well as online.

Our public Library offers online service link-ups as well (on their website). Be sure to check out your local library site for information on how to e-check-out audio books, download FREE mp3 files and even access language classes. Or you can visit the Fort Dodge Public Library  site for yourself.


I just finished the The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants [Audiobook, Unabridged] by Ann Brashares. Honestly, after finishing this book, I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to get to it.
