Check out list of titles matched to your trip. Here, Richard Gere and Diane Lane in the movie version of "Nights in Rodanthe," one of the selected titles. (Michael Tackett / Warner Bros.)
What to listen to on your upcoming holiday flight or long car trip? Audiobooks.com has put together reading lists customized to particular trips. For instance, those taking an L.A.-to-Hawaii flight might order Chelsea Handler’s “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.” Younger readers might order “Holes,” by Louis Sachar. Why? Because they can both be finished in the time it takes to fly that route. Naturally, you won’t find “War and Peace” on any of the lists, though you might consider it if you’re taking a connecting flight through Chicago or Detroit in January.
Here are Audiobooks’ recommendations, customized to particular travel times:
