Heard any good books lately? Audio books are a great way to pass the time while driving long distances for a trucking company. Not only are they entertaining, but they also help keep you alert and alleviate road fatigue. Most libraries offer audio books on CD, or you can subscribe to Amazon Prime or the Audible app to listen on a mobile device, such as a smart phone, tablet, or laptop.  While there are many amazing titles to choose from, here are a few great choices for the long haul.
