Audiobook Week Day #5


The Question today, the final day of Audiobook Week (hosted by Jen at Devourer of Books)  is: Where do you learn about great audiobook titles? Find reviews? Buy your audiobooks? Share your secrets with the rest of us!

I only learn about great audio books from those of you who review them.  Or pass that info on to me in a comment or facebook, etc.

Right now I am listening to  "A Land More Kind Than Home" which was recommended to me by Kathy at Bermudaonion.  I know how I feel when I recommend a book to someone--I get nervous.  (what if they don't like it?  what if it's not their kind of book?)
so I will tell you right now...even tho I am  only 1 hour into it  (It's an 8 hour listen) I LOVE THE NARRATION!!  And the story.
I couldn't imagine 'reading' the book after listening to these narrators.

Anyway, that is how I learn about great audiobooks.  From friends!  
And I am leaving Audiobook week, with a list of books I want to read/listen to in the next few months.  I will miss everyone's recommendations.  I'll have to pay closer attention to those bloggers who do a lot of audio reviews.
I buy from  audible.com,our library doesn't have a  audio or e-book program yet.  They do have a nice small collection of  books on CD, but I use my Ipod.

Bye Audio friends!  (for now)

I feel so fortunate my library system has audiobooks available - but bloggers are my go to sources for recommendations also.

I have a such a list of books to read as recommended by friends. I find new authors that I just love that way.
