  1. This year we had to drive to California more than once from Indiana. We went thru quite a few audiobooks, each more than 8 hrs, some 12. They were perfect. When still working, perfect for commute. Sure breaks the monotony.

    I’ve wanted to read ‘Sing, Unburied, Sing’ for a while now. It would be quite good to listen to it instead. so thanks for the links!
