Audiobooks add interest to vacations

News from Delmarva Now: An easy way to make vacations and staycations more interesting is to check out some audiobooks from the library and have the entire family listen to one or two.

Audiobooks: SJ Watson, Ali Smith

News from Telegraph.co.uk: The bestselling first novel by S J Watson, Before I Go to Sleep (Random House, 12hrs 15mins unabridged, £17.99), is already set to conquer the world in 34 languages.

Then Dr Nash turns up while Ben is out. He tells Christine to keep a journal in the hope that it will stir up … Read entire article »
