I read tons of audiobooks every year. They are always playing in the background: when I’m driving, sometimes when working, when cleaning the house, and combining other favorite hobbies like doing puzzles.
I get asked for recommendations all the time, so I thought I’d put together a post with some of my all-time favorites; the audiobooks I push on all of my bookish friends and never stop talking about. I’ll link to my review, if I have one for that particular title.
