Heard any good books lately while driving? I recently heard the Count of Monte Christo and really enjoyed it. About 70 hours of listening. This is a book I read in high school (one room school, lol). I’ve watched several movie adaptations.

What books do you recommend if you listen to audio books?

A series of 5 books by author Stephen R Lawhead called the Pendragon Cycle. It's a Christian twist on the Arthurian legend. The first book is titled Taliesin. All 5 are available on Audible.

My last 3 trucks did not have a CD player 😡 I have about 150+ audio books I would like to listen to again.

I'll probably put some on eBay and box some up to give to a VA nursing home.

I mostly listen to podcasts, but if you are interested in finding some classic literature, I would recommend the Literature and History Podcast by Doug Metzger.

The podcast essentially summarizes the most significant literature throughout history in chronological order. Right now he is covering Saint Augustine.

I mostly just listen to my music playlist sometimes I listen to mentour pilots aircraft accident videos (just listen of course not watch) and there always interesting explains the mechanism/engineering/ and aerodynamic physics that causes the accident while keeping in mind human behavior and how people respond to issues that come up.

Les Miserables, tale of two cities, are good follow ups. They're about the same time period as Monte Cristo. And if you want a laugh Don Quixote

I accidentally hit report instead of reply so heads up that's a false alarm. Also spoiler alert to those that haven't read Monte Cristo. But the part were Mercedes confronts that Count after Albert challenged him to a duel, and then Albert conceding the duel the following chapter is bad azz

Have you tried the Warlord Chronicles trilogy by Bernard Cornwell? A pagan twist on the Arthurian legend. Or the Camulod Chronicles by Jack Whyte which is a Roman twist on the Arthurian legend.

As for audio books, wish I could because I'm an avid reader, but listening to someone else read will put me right to sleep.
