The majority of SAB patrons say that they listen to audio books in their car – mostly to keep a tenuous hold on their patience and/or sanity during a grueling work commute. So when Friday rolls around and you’re suddenly faced with a 2 day break in your book-of-choice, its not surprising that some people take the long way home in order to try to finish up a story.
According to our subscribers at Simply Audiobooks, 4 names stick out as the masters of “keep-you-glued-to-your-seat” fiction. You know, the authors who write the stories that leave you idling your car an extra 10 minutes while you finish out a chapter. They are:
1) James Patterson: Author of Honeymoon, London Bridges, and the Women’s Murder Club series, among many many others. If the last title rings a bell, that’s because its also behind ABC’s latest show by the same name!
2) Sue Grafton: Author of A is for Alibi, B is for Burglar, C is for Corpse… (do you sense a pattern here?). While she’s only at T (for Trespass, of course), one assumes that given the popularity of her work that she’ll continue to the very end. Perhaps “Z is for Zenophobic”?
3) Nora Roberts/JD Robb: Author of Chesapeake Blue and the extensive In Death series, we’re talking about a writer so prolific she felt the need to create an alternate pen name for her collection of over 100 novels.
