Audiobooks on the Road
When’s the last time you had time to sit down and read a good book? Some of us just can’t seem to find the time between driving our Star, spending time with family and friends, watching sports, making a hearty meal, and driving our Star some more. With audiobooks, you can now enjoy a great book while you’re at work!
Years ago it was books-on-tape, then it became books-on-CD, and now it has transformed into to digital audiobooks. You can find books of every type: mysteries and thrillers, sci-fi and fantasy, history, science and technology, classics, bios and memoirs, self development, fiction and nonfiction, comedy, and more. If you come across an “unabridged” version, this means that the narrator will read the entire book – great for your long-distance trips. The “abridged” version is the reduced version of the book; the small details are left out to shorten listening time by up to several hours. No matter how short or long your trips are, you’ll definitely enjoy a good story.

Written by: Luis Carlos Montalvan; Narrated by: Luis Carlos Montalvan; Length: 8 hrs and 3 mins
A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq.

Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever…. Read more
