Golf is not a game of perfect - Bob Rotella
Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens
11.22.63 - Stephen King
Cell - Stephen King
It - Stephen King

That's the ones I have on my iPad at the moment, also read Michael J Fox autobiography, excellent book.
And of course the early Tom clancy books.
11.22.63 is fantastic!

I liked all Dan Brown's stuff. Have a hard time staying awake reading so I do audio books.
He tends to recycle ideas and characters so if you like one you'll probably enjoy them all. The only one I was meh about was Digital Fortress.

I love audiobooks. It's easier for me to find time to listen to an audiobook than to read. They are perfect for working in the shop, doing mindless data entry at the office and driving. Listening makes boring activities tolerable. I could sand wood for days if I have a good book, lol.

Never done an audiobook, do you get the same experience as reading? I think I'll try one for my trip to Philly.

I tried one while driving and almost fell asleep.
Was it this one?

I enjoy them. I zone out seconds after my wife starts telling a story but I have no problems falling into the book world. If you're going to have a lot of distractions, it's not worth your time.

The only complaint that I have is that audiobooks are expensive. I ended up getting a membership to Audible to save a little cash.
