Hands down, one of the best RVing tips for entertainment on driving days is enjoying electronic ebooks and audiobooks offered by our local library.  I started reading ebooks on a tablet some time ago, but the audiobook scene escaped me.  For kicks, I checked out a few on our last RV trip and found myself gripped by the story, nearly as bad as a daytime TV watcher waiting for the next episode of a soap opera.  My turn to drive while my husband slept was all the more reason to hear a few more chapters. 
To sign up for this glorious new addiction, we got a local library card from our home base library that allows access to the digital versions of our favorite books through a phone app called Overdrive. The Library to Go program of audiobooks and ebooks we borrow download to our phones or tablets.  In the case of audiobooks, we play them through our normal stereo using a USB cable.  On occasion, I listen via headphones. 
For the practical matters, the ebooks or audiobooks are automatically returned when the 14 day check-out period is over.  That means no late fees ever.  You can read or listen to Michael Connelly’s series about the detective Harry Bosch, or opt for almost any of the books written by John Grisham, or find a hot new romance title.  From our library, there are thousands of ebooks and audiobooks for selection in every genre, including the most popular authors.  Newer releases seem to hit the catalog quickly, though some of the ebooks and audiobooks have a waitlist where you sign up and the item is automatically checked out to you when it is your turn. The program designers seem to think of every convenience.  No matter where we are, we can access our library system to look at what is new and check out digital items.  




Going down the Rogue River in Oregon on the Hellgate tour was a thrill!  We took the whole family for the dinner cruise.  Good food and plenty of splash from the 360 degree boat turns afterward.  It was a day to remember.  Thanks for the tip!
