Quick and easy fiction fix: Short story audiobooks

Being short of time is a common situation for many of us and we all want to use it wisely. I have recently found audio short stories to be a perfect fit for that desire to combine limited free time with quality entertainment. This time of year is also a perfect opportunity as many of us are embarking on new hobbies such as jogging or going to the gym. Short stories provide that ‘fiction fix’ in a quick manner, making those early sessions easier to persevere with into the year and beyond!

Thankfully, the library has a number of short fiction collections that are available to borrow as audiobooks and vary widely across a number of genres. I have listed a number of standout titles below but we have hundreds of short story audiobook titles in the catalogue
