Audiobooks?

July 25th, 2018 at 06:48 pm

We are gearing up for our Pacific Northwest road trip.

The first 4 nights of hotels added up to $561, or exactly the amount of our credit card reward! (I did not plan that, whatsoever). Crazy!

I wanted to ask if anyone has any audiobook suggestions. (Or podcasts).

I am open to anything. But my kids are probably pretty picky. (They are book snobs, would be bored out of their mind as to anything geared at kids). Non-fiction might be better.

(For any frame of reference, the picky kid's favorite author is Brandon Sanderson. Which might be what we end up with because my family is frustrated I never read any of his books. It just sounds like a huge commitment. So they will trap me in a car and make me listen to it! Which is fine, but I might want something a little lighter to break it up. Maybe we can compromise with that).

We hadn't really thought about it, and we realize it's going to be harder than in the past to find something we all agree on.

I think the rest of us are pretty open to whatever. So we might get some new ideas we wouldn't have otherwise.

TIA!

    I love podcasts. This American Life has some interesting stories. Some weeks I don't care for it, but others are quite entertaining. There is also a news quiz show, Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me that I listen to sometimes.

    "Becoming Kareem" by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, read by the author, very inspirational. Classified as for "young readers" but it really doesn't feel like it. You don't have to be in to sports to get a lot out of it. I listened to it on a road trip with my mom and brother and we all loved it.

    If they like science, I did a trip once listening to "The Immortal Lives of Henrietta Lacks" and found it interesting with regard to both science and history.
