As many of you know, I travel for my job and love to listen to audio books on CD. I have found the most wonderful program through Cracker Barrel restaurants. You can 'rent' audio books on CD. When you first go into a Cracker Barrel, you pick out your audio book and pay full retail. Then keep the book, listen to it while traveling, return it within a few days/weeks, and receive a credit for the retail price that you paid minus the weekly rental charge.
My most recent listening experience was Mary Kay Andrews, Deep Dish. The book is a work of fiction with the characters based in Georgia, so of course that attracted me to the book. I am originally from Monroe, Georgia, which is about 20 minutes west of Athens, Georgia. I have read several of Mary Kay Andrews books including, Savannah Breeze and and Hissy Fit and loved both of those and Deep Dish kept me just as entertained on a recent trip from Greensboro, North Carolina back to Beaufort South Carolina.
I find Mary Kay Andrews books hysterical and with Hissy Fit, I could actually see myself throwing the 'hissy fit' that the story is centered around (bet that makes you want to read it, doesn't it?). Hissy Fit was the first audio book on CD that I listened to by Mary Kay Andrews and I fell in love with her sweet south charm display in each of her books.
Next time you are taking a road trip, why not stop at Cracker Barrel and pick up an audio book on CD. It will make the trip go much quicker! I'll see you on the front porch. I'll be the one enjoying the rocking chair!
