Confessions of an Audio Addict 

Really. I am addicted. If there are not at least three books on CD in my vehicle and two on my iPhone, I start to get jittery and my palms start to sweat. I get irritated when people want to ride in my car. I will take the long way home or even sit in the driveway to finish a chapter. When I am listening to a well-crafted story with an accomplished narrator, I am in my happy place and want no interruptions.  My obsession started when I had to commute 45 minutes over a mountain with no radio reception and, 15 years later, it shows no sign of waning. So I thought I would put all of those hours of listening to good use and share some of my favorites with you. This installment is contemporary women's' literature, featuring some of my favorite authors and narrators. Listen up and enjoy!
