The teleplays and radio shows of yesteryear have given way to podcasts and audiobooks in today's media landscape. It's possible that our always-on-the-go lifestyle is what brings us back to the medium. If not that, perhaps it's our never-ending desire to consume more things. Whatever your motivation may be, now is easily the best time in history to start listening to audiobooks. Not only are audiobooks an easy way to cross books off your reading list while you're on the go, but a good audiobook, and now even video chat can also provide a fresh take on some of your all-time favorite works of literature.

Understand Why the Bird in the Cage Sings?

This is a book that captures the joy and pain, the mystery and the indelible memories of childhood all in one. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the yearning of solitary children, the brutal insult of bigotry, and the awe-inspiring power of words to set the world to rights. Maya Angelou's first memoir is now considered a modern American classic and is cherished all over the world. Maya and her brother, Bailey, are forced to endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local "powhitetrash" after being sent by their mother to live with their devout and self-sufficient grandmother in a small town in the South.

DIANE KEATON - Slouching Towards Bethlehem

This is Joan Didion's first work of nonfiction, and it provides a penetrating look at the state of mind in America during the 1960s as well as an indispensable portrait of the counterculture in California. Within the confines of a Death Valley motel room, she mulls over the ways in which John Wayne and Howard Hughes have influenced her, as well as the nature of good and evil. Slouching Towards Bethlehem is a collection of essays that take their name from W.B. Yeats' poem "The Second Coming." Each of the essays in this collection reflects, in one way or another, that "the center cannot hold."

Born a Crime

Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime tells the story of how this boy went from being a mischievous young boy to a restless young man. It is also the story of the relationship that young man had with his fearless, defiant, and fervently religious mother, who was also his teammate. This mother was determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.

"The Kite Runner," set in Afghanistan in the 1970s

Amir, a young boy of twelve years old, is determined to triumph in the regional kite-fighting competition, and his devoted friend Hassan pledges to assist him. But neither of the boys could have anticipated what would happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that would completely change the course of their lives. After the Russians invade Afghanistan and Amir's family is forced to flee to the United States, Amir realizes that one day he will have to return to Afghanistan when it is ruled by the Taliban in order to find the one thing that his new world will not be able to give him

Elizabeth Rush | The Ascent of Climate Change

It is becoming increasingly obvious that climate change is neither an abstract concept nor an abstract threat, and that rising seas are already transforming the coastline of the United States in ways that cannot be reversed. This becomes clearer with each passing day and each record-breaking hurricane. From the Gulf Coast to Miami, and from New York City to the Bay Area, Elizabeth Rush takes readers on a journey through some of the regions that have been most significantly affected by this change in her book Rising.


In today's fast-paced world, it can be challenging to find time to read books. However, the rise of audiobooks and podcasts has made it easier than ever to consume literature on the go. Audiobooks offer a unique listening experience that can bring fresh perspectives to beloved works of literature. Four examples of such books are "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," "Slouching Towards Bethlehem," "Born a Crime," and "The Kite Runner." These books cover a range of themes, from the struggles of growing up in a prejudiced society to the impacts of climate change. Overall, audiobooks provide an accessible and convenient way to engage with literature and explore new ideas.
