Too Busy To Read?

Cover of Plum Spooky by Janet EvanovichPeople think librarians get to read all the time. Not so. But one way librarians and other book lovers increase their reading time is to listen to audio books. There are various formats to get audio books, including downloading to an MP3 or other similar device from our digital library. Another way is to check out books on CD. Here are some popular books on CD at the La Porte Branch:  Plum spooky by Janet Evanovich; The associate by John Grisham; The UltraMind solution : fix your broken brain by healing your body first : the simple way to defeat depression, overcome anxiety, and sharpen your mind by Mark Hyman; A big little life : a memoir of a joyful dog by Dean R. Koontz; The host by Stephanie Meyer.
