New Adult Fiction Talking Books Recommended Reads

Born in IceThere's a great resource offered by libraries that often falls under the radar. Talking books, whether on cassette, CD, or audio book, aren't often used, but should be! They can supply hands-free entertainment in the car, on a run, or while making dinner. There are many great titles in every genre offered by the Dublin City Public Libraries and Archive, and ready for use.

Below are a few titles just added to the library's collection. See if any spark your interest! 

Walking Talking Books

The Help'Let me tell you a story'...who can resist that invitation? With longer evenings and warmer weather I have no more excuses for postponing my 'fitness programme'. So out come my walking books and I am out the door with my favourite walking companion - an audiobook.

No more boredom, no more pedometer watching, no more short cuts. I can even go the extra mile and still look forward to the next walk. And the high moral ground is luxurious - exercise of body and soul!
