Travel Essential: Listening to Audible on the Road

This year, I’ve spent the last nine months exploring the 10 provinces and 3 territories in our great country. But the one thing you realize early on when you are on the road is that Canada is a very large country. To get from one city to another you can spend countless hours driving . I also realized that  there was only so much Top40 music that I couldn’t listen to and found myself searching for something else to help the time fly by. Thankfully, just in time for my road trip around Newfoundland and Labrador, is now available for Canadians!

Audible, Inc. is the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content. The newly launched will give users access to over 300,000 audiobooks, original programs, lectures, comedy and more, including over 100 new titles from Canadian authors in English and French available. Meaning, that no matter where you’re driving, commuting or exploring, you can bring your favourite audiobooks and podcasts with you.
In July, I had the pleasure to interview Margaret Atwood on a cruise through Nunavut and learn about some her favourite books that she is eager to read.  And while I’d love to read them all, I can never find enough time in the day to sit down and read. But now with  Audible I can now download some of the titles she recommended and listen to them on my next flight or subway ride through the city!

Audible is also offering its special edition of Margaret Atwood’s THE HANDMAID’S TALE, performed by Claire Danes and featuring new content original to the recording. This is just one of the many ways they are investing in the promotion of Canadian literature and content on their platform allowing you to bring some of you favourite authors with you on the road.

To help inspire your listening, here are five great titles now available on that I can’t wait to download:

1. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

2. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

3. What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding  by Kristin Newman

4. Moral Disorder by Margaret Atwood

5. What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton
