Kids Fighting In the Back Seat? Get an Audiobook!
November 22, 2011
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp air, the brilliant red and yellow maples, the amazingly clear blue skies and the anticipation of Thanksgiving. I look forward to the simplicity of this holiday—a chance to reflect and be thankful for all that we have including those we love. And of course, the food!
Preparing a scrumptious meal and enjoying it with family is time well spent. But, fall never lasts long enough for me, and too soon I’m raking up all the leaves, winterizing my garden, and wondering where I stored the ice scraper. Suddenly, as if brought in with the frigid northern winds, my calm fall season of October skies and maple leaves evaporates into the most hectic time of the year.
As the season gets into full swing, our calendar is filling up with family events and shopping trips, and time is a precious commodity. If you are like my family and me, this time of year often means more time in the car...over the river and through the woods comes to mind.
Whether I’m driving all over town searching for that perfect gift or traveling to visit relatives, audiobooks are one way to make that extra time in the car more enjoyable. MCPL has a great selection to keep you company on those long, ten hour trips to grandma and grandpa’s house with the kids fighting in the back seat. If it’s holiday music you need to get yourself into the spirit of the holiday, or if you just want respite from it, you can explore our vast CD music collection or our Music resources.
