Becke says: I’m pretty new to audiobooks, and I think that puts me in a minority. My friends are always raving to me about different books they absolutely adored as audiobooks. Back when there were what we called “books on tape,” my husband and I enjoyed listening to those book tapes whenever we went on a road trip. Those old books on tape were Model-T Fords compared to the new world of audiobooks. Co-authors Renae Mason, Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard join us in their debut visit to RU.
