As you probably know, June 25-29, 2012 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, or write on another audiobook-related topic you can link those posts under the discussion topics as well. I f you would like to participate but do not have your own blog, feel free to leave your own reviews and responses in the comments of the appropriate posts.
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 at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
Daily Discussion Topics:
