Great Audiobook Listens for the Summer

June is Audiobook Month! I love listening to audiobooks. You can listen to them while you are cooking, exercising, commuting…just with so many activities! When I hit a wall in my reading, audiobooks are a great way to get back into it.

Whether you are looking for your first audiobook to listen to or great recommendations to get your summer off on the right start, here some audio listens that show why audiobooks are truly awesome:
