Friday Finds- Audiobooks!

This week I added two new books to my collection- both audiobooks! They were also both rentals from my local independent bookstore so I don't know you could say I added them so much as briefly incorporated them, but- details!
First up is David Grann's fascinating The Lost City of Z- I've already finished listening to it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I remember being sort of interested in it when it came out but then I never quite got back around. But it was terrific! I'll have a full review soon.
Then I also added Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, which I'll be starting today. I'm looking forward to this of course as well. I like reading nonfiction via audio- I like to focus  more on nuances of language with fiction so paper books will always be my first choice there. But when it's a matter of conveying information via a story, I find audio works just fine.

What about you? Do you like audio? For fiction or nonfiction, or both? Do you have any nonfiction recommendations for me for my next audiobook? And what did you find this week that you're excited about?
