Must-Hear 2006 Audiobooks

Sometimes an audiobook can be a better literary experience than a printed book. The narration by a professional actor can make the story come alive and stay with you longer. Browsing at your local branch may not result in an audiobook that you will like. Quite often you will need to place a hold on a popular title using the online catalog.
