Learning About Audiobooks – Audiobook Week Discussion

If you wrote a post on this or any of my other discussion topics today, Friday June 21st please leave your link in the Mr. Linky.audiobookweekbutton zpsdb6e126c picture

Today’s prompt:

Where do you learn about great audiobook titles? Buy your audiobooks? Share your secrets with the rest of us! We’d particularly love to know what narrators or publishers are active in social media or do a great job communicating with listeners.

Hey, so, I don’t have an answer for you guys today. We had some family stuff going on earlier this week and I just never got a chance to write this post. That’s also why I have only had one review this week instead of the three I planned, and why I’m super behind on visiting all the posts you all linked up this week (I promise I’ll get there).

Now, in the mean time, I really want to know where you learn about audiobooks. And going forward, I hope you’ll share your audiobook reviews here on Fridays for Sound Bytes.

  • Thanks for hosting audiobook week! Hope you’re doing okay this week. Sending good thoughts to you and your family :)

  • I hope all goes well with your family. It’s been a lot of fun being a part of Audiobook Week. Thank you for all the work you did to put it together!

  • Hope all is well. Thanks for hosting this awesome feature :)

  • I’ve been on such an audio kick lately that’s it’s been great focusing on them on my blog this week, so thank you! I already posted a review this morning, so I’ll answer the question here.

    I usually learn about audiobooks in two ways. The first is from Audible, I search around, listen to previews of books because I rarely buy audiobooks if I don’t like the narration, although I have purchased blindly (or deafly?) before. I look by genre when I’m in the mood for something but I don’t have a specific title in mind. Some of my purchases are also due to the sales that Audible has. Some books I buy because I really like the narrator’s voice (Khristine Hvam, Jim Dale, etc).

    The other way is through other bloggers and their reviews. I really like discovering good audiobooks this way simply because it’s sometimes a book or author I normally wouldn’t think to look for on Audible. Book blogging has expanded my book world so much, and audiobooks are my favorite way of reading all the books I desperately want to get to in this lifetime. :)

  • This has been so fun! I feel late to the party, but I’m so glad that I’ve found a network of blogs that feature audiobooks so prominently.

  • I hope everything calms down for you and thank you for hosting this event. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve met some great new bloggers :)

  • I’ll be sure to drop by and share my audiobook reviews here on Fridays for Sound Bytes. Thanks for hosting this event.

  • Hope everything is okay. Thanks for hosting this – it was fun!
