Get Caught Listening: Best Audiobooks You Might Have Missed

June was Audiobook Month! But we think audiobooks should be celebrated all summer long - we're nominating summer as "The Season of Audiobooks", due to the amount of customers looking for audiobooks for their vacation car trips.  We even know a customer who listens to audiobooks while gardening, and some like to listen while working on crafts and projects.

In case you were looking for some audiobooks, we've compiled a list of recommended titles from a variety of websites for your listening pleasure!

All audiobooks listed are books on CD, unless otherwise noted.
