Yeah, sometimes I take them out of the library instead of getting my audio books online. I feel like, if it’s free, I should do it. But I’m terrible about deadlines, and the service I use to order my audio books online doesn’t charge any kind of late fee. It is set up just like netflix, actually; I get the next audio book online when I return the previous one, and I can have up to five out at once, more than enough for a 3 day haul and the return trip!
Of course, it’s best to order a variety of audio books online at first. What you enjoy reading at home isn’t necessarily going to be what is fun for you to listen to when you are driving. Mostly at home, I read do it yourself books on fixing things, redoing your kitchen, etc.
When I do read fiction, it is usually pretty heavy stuff the classics, you might say. I love, above all, the Russians Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Nabokov. But you don’t want to be listening to something like that on the road. You need something lighter, something that doesn’t require too much attention.
When I order audio books online for my trip, I’ve found that mysteries are great, thrillers, even better. Lots of excitement, but little intellectual commitment required the perfect thing to listen to while you’re driving down the road.
As a truck driver, keeping myself entertained during the long haul isn’t just a matter of enjoyment. My success at my job and my very safety depend on it. Think about it, driving 15, maybe 16 hours at once down the highway, 10 feet off the ground, bouncing around, staying focused and on task is no easy task.
There are all kinds of tricks that truckers use. It is no secret that some of us take speed. Others go over what they did the last day, or talk on their cbs to each other, but for me, well, my heart condition means even caffeine is to be avoided, and there’s only so much small talk which I can make with strangers. So, after a while, I found the best way for me to stay on task: ordering audio books online to listen to on the drive.
My favorite audio books online are things that I’d never read sitting down, but I love nothing better than putting them on while I’m driving down the road.
