Audiobook Vacation/Road Trip Recommendations #JIABM 2012

As some of you know June is Audiobook Month so I put together this list of books I believe would be great for a vacation road trip, these are just ones I have listened to personally. I have split it up into categories the Family and Teens ones will be enjoyed by young and adult alike. I have also added categories for you if you are traveling alone or with all adults. I tried to stick with books that will keep you awake and may give a bit of a giggle even if the story is a serious.. 

I hope you will find something you like and if anyone else has any recommendations feel free to leave them in the comments!
