Friday of Audiobook Week 2013

Audiobook Week is wrapping up today. If you're joining us today, stop by Devourer of Books to see everyone's links.


It's been an exciting week celebrating audiobooks! The final discussion question is about finding audiobooks. Where do you learn about titles?

My top resource is the public library. I live near two different library systems which is such a blessing for an avid listener and reader. I also have access to the library's OverDrive system which is a great resource for e-audios and e-books. Working at the library also opens the doors to review journals and publisher's catalogs.

Beyond the library, I follow bloggers, GoodReads, and Twitter. I started contacting Audiobook Jukebox, which is a fantastic site for access to review copies of audiobooks. For now, my contacts are few, but as I travel more deeply into the world of audio, I hope to expand my circle of audiobook friends.

It's been a blast chatting with everyone this week about audiobooks! Thank you, Devourer of Books for putting this celebration together! I hope you'll give audios a try if you're an audio newbie. If you're an audio veteran, keep listening! I look forward to hearing your reviews. Happy listening, friends!

  1. Agreed that the library is the best resource for affordable audiobooks. That's my first reply when potential listeners are put off by the high price of audiobooks.

    It's been fun finding new bloggers during audiobook week this week! Looking forward to chatting more about audiobooks with you.

  2. I use my library and Overdrive for the majority of my audios - I can't fathom buying audios at full price!
