Audiobooks to Listen to While on Assignment

A little fun fact about me: I’m a voracious reader! I love diving into new stories and getting lost inside the minds of better-than-life characters. It’s been this way since I was young and first fell in love with reading; I could stay in a bookshop for hours or hide out in my favorite reading spot and knock out a book in one sitting. But, as I’ve gotten older and responsibilities have been piled on, it seems like the time I have to sit down and read has become less and less. That’s why I love audiobooks.

Audiobooks have become my best friend for completing my yearly reading challenge on Goodreads – an online resource to track and rate the books I’ve read and seek out recommendations for the ones I haven’t – because they allow for the option of multitasking. Cleaning? Audiobook. Driving long distances? Audiobook. Going on a walk? Audiobook. The list goes on! Whether you’re in search of your next audiobook to read while traveling to and from your next destination, or just looking for the next story to indulge in after a long shift, check out my recommendations for audiobooks to listen to while on assignment.
