As you probably know, next week, June 6-10, 2011, is Audiobook Week here at Devourer of Books! If you haven’t heard about Audiobook Week yet, check out my first post on the topic.
There will be a lot going on here, and I hope that you will consider taking part! I will have daily reviews as well as daily discussion/exposition topics on audiobooks. At the end of each of my reviews and each discussion topic I will have a Mr. Linky for you to leave a link to your audiobook review/discussion post. If you have anyone guest post on your blog about audiobooks you can link that guest post under the discussion topics as well. I f you would like to participate but do not have your own blog, you may want to consider joining Audiobook Community,which has a built-in blog feature. If you do join, friend me, I’m Jen –Devourer of Books there.
I’ve had some generous sponsors, so I have LOTS of copies of audiobooks to give away to give away next week. Every day I will choose at least one person who has included a link to a review and one person who has included a link to a discussion post to win an audiobook, and will choose at least one other winner from commenters here next week. A few other participants will also have opportunities to win. I will have a list of all the audios I have available (and where they can be shipped), winners will email me their choice and I will remove the selected title from the list. Since I’ll be choosing from the Mr. Linky, PLEASE make sure your blog has an easily found way to contact you!
