We’re going to Los Angeles next week, and as usual, I spent some time preparing my iPad and iPhone for the trip, stocking them with new things to read and play. I have a short attention span, so I need enough things to distract me whenever I’m on a plane, train, or boat.
My go-to app for travel is still Libby by OverDrive, a free app that lets me check out books and audiobooks from the public library. There’s always plenty to read or listen to, with tens of thousands of titles to choose from. For this trip, I consulted recent novels by some of my favorite series authors, including Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs), and Stuart Woods (Stone Barrington). I also grabbed a James Patterson audiobook as a backup if I finish the eBooks.
