Audio Adventures for the Car

Many an hour did we spend listening to audio adventures as my boys were growing up. I loved listening to them.  We still talk about the books we listened to while we were in the car.

Perhaps you are going on a long road trip and need some audio books to pass the time.  Why not consider some of these resources? There are free and paid services as well as some specific series and titles my family has enjoyed over the years.

EPIC has thousands of books to read and has an audiobook section too. The cost is $7.99 per month and you can cancel at any time.

Librivox has free ebooks that are public domain and read by volunteers. Books are available to stream online or download. Some of the books include dramatizations that are done by a group of actors while others feature a single reader.

Loyal Books has over 7,000 free titles to listen to and enjoy. Some books to consider listening to include Treasure Island, Anne of Green Gables, and Swiss Family Robinson.

Adventures in Odyssey is a series that we first heard on the radio. You can listen to it that way or you can purchase CD’s to enjoy whenever you wish. Our library carried some of the series and the kids loved them!

Redwall by Brian Jacques is the beginning of a series of villain and heroes in the animal kingdom. Once you have listened to this book you are going to want to listen to more of these adventures.

All Creatures Great and Small is one of my all-time favorites. James Herriott was a veterinarian who lived in Great Britain and tells hilarious stories of farmers and their animals.

Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien just can’t be beat listening to it on audiobook. Everyone had a favorite part and many hours were spent listening to the stories of the Hobbit and “The Ring”.

Have a great week! ~Lisa~
