Sometimes the best vacations are taken right in your own living room or sitting out on your deck. I have been completely carried away to another land recently, listening to the audio book version of The Chronicles of Narnia, by C. S. Lewis. It’s a 31-disc adventure to listen to all seven books (I can’t believe I’d never read them before!), but I’m enjoying them very much (and am getting a lot of knitting done, too.) There is a different narrator for each book — a wonderful group of the best actors/voices/talent possible! If you and your family are heading out for a road trip before the end of summer, (are road trips things of the past now?), these wonderful adventures will keep you all entertained for miles and miles.
