Hi guys, as you probably already know (and if you don’t!) June is Audiobook month! [I know, it’s already half way through June, but there’s still half a month left! I’m just late to posting, hee) I think lately audio books are really starting to hit it big. I can tell you I use to not be a huge fan because, well, I could read faster than it reading it to me, so I get frustrated. But lately, they’ve become super handy because I can just listen to my book while I’m driving, or running, or cleaning! There are a few different campaign going on to spread the word: Audio Publishers Association: June is Audiobook Month‘s page has some idea on how you can get involved. (ie. Use the hashtag #ListenLit, or #JIAM2014) Get Caught Reading‘s Get Caught Listening has links to download audio, to share how to use audio books in school and how to promote it, & more! Sync is perfect for the YA reading/audiobook-listener! Throughout the summer, every week, they have a new YA title, along with a classic title free for download! HERE’s THE SYNC SCHEDULE, so you don’t miss out! This is the perfect time to download some free audiobooks and see how you like them! Like I mentioned, I haven’t listen to a ton, but I’m always up for recommendations! Sometimes the narrator can really make it or break it for me. I love listening to autobiographies narrated by the author (like Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants). And sometimes I just listen to books because of the narrator! (Like The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner because it’s narrated by Tom Hiddleston and he just has a fabulous voice, haha.) Anyway, let me know which are must listens, and go forth and enjoy audio books (:
