Audiobooks Perfect for Summer Walks, Hammock Sessions or Pool/Beachside Listening

Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

“One of my favorite audiobooks to listen to is Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I Can. It’s especially great if you’re a fan of her or her shows. She reads the book herself and is just as funny as she is on television. It’s a good book if you’re looking for a short read.”

– Amelia Norton, information services assistant, Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

“This is a wonderfully heart-wrenching book set in a world where a company is able to predict the exact day a person dies. The book follows two teenage boys who want to live out their End Day to the fullest. It’s such a great story, and the audiobook is even better because it has my favorite narrator, Robbie Daymond! I will read just about anything that he narrates. He brings all of his characters to life and adds more to their story than what’s written on the page.”

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

“For anyone who has not experienced the comedy classic A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, I highly recommend the audiobook with narrator Barrett Whitener.  His audiobook narration really brings the outrageous characters of New Orleans to life, and made me appreciate why this book has been such a prized work of American literature.”

– Randy Warpool, information services assistant, Cold Spring Branch
