Well-Rounded Listening

Last week we provided an annotated list of a few recent--and diverse--business and financial books available through the Library.

This week we'll do the same for books to which you can listen.  At home and in the car are the most popular venues for these, but we also have a number of over-the-road truckers who are voracious consumers of audiobooks.
