Our Audible Book List

Getting a book recommendation from someone I know is my favorite way to be introduced to a good read. With that in mind, here is our list of Audible books that we have enjoyed over the years. Some are obviously Tracy’s books, some are clearly Kathy’s books, but most of them we have both read. We read most of our books using Audible because we can read/listen while exercising, driving, boating, and even doing yard work.

This is just a simple list of all the books. We will also do book reviews for some of our favorites.
