July 2016 Reads: Audiobooks for When You Don't Have Time to Read

A Detailed Palette - July Audiobooks

I am still attempting to finish up Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. I have been about 1/3 through it for months.

It has been really difficult to find time to read lately, which I think is a struggle that most people can identify with. It seems that, with my 2 hour commute every day, the only time I can actually make for it is in the car with audiobooks. So here is to reading/listening to a few free audiobooks I have found on Youtube. I doubt I'll get through all of these this month, but it's nice to have some really great options. Here they are in case you're interested in taking a listen:

The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway - a Hemingway novel that I have yet to read.

No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy - considering McCarthy doens't always use punctuation (the guy has a serious problem with commas), I think that listening to this will be infinitely more enjoyable than reading it.

Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut - I actually have no idea what this is about, only that I need to read more Kurt Vonnegut.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie - because I need to read anything and everything by Agatha Christie. The woman is a master of mystery and suspense.

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie - I think this is one of her more famous stories, and I believe there was even a Doctor Who episode inspired by this book.

Happy reading/listening!
