WARSAW — Who doesn’t love cozying up with a good book now and then? It is a fantastic way to pass the time and take you on an adventure.
June is Audiobook Month and is a good time to celebrate the love of reading.
Celebrating Audiobook Month is simple. Find your favorite book in an audio format and try listening to it on your way to work. You can listen to it while you’re in the shower or laying in bed. What would summer vacation be without fun in the sun and listening to an audiobook? They are also perfect for family trips. Car rides fly by when the whole family can enjoy a story together. With top-notch narration, audiobooks are an incredible way to experience stellar storytelling that will enhance understanding of the story.
The opportunities are endless. The types of books you can find on tape are growing every year, from compilations of mythology to books on learning a new language, and even certain forms of technical manuals can be found in an audio format. Below are some audiobooks that have newly arrived at the Warsaw Community Public Library.
