Audiobook fans know that a narrator can make or break a book. I’ve even been known to pick up an audiobook simply because of the narrator. Here are some recommendations of audiobook narrators that I enjoy plus one of their stories that I enjoyed.
Looking to try audiobooks? Consider Libro.fm. They offer a monthly subscription similar to Audible but it supports your local bookstore. Use my affiliate link to sign up.
My favorite ‘season’ is here! Free audiobook season! SYNC teams up with publishers every Spring and Summer to offer listeners free audiobooks. Yes, free! If you’ve been on the fence about trying audiobooks, your library doesn’t have a great selection of audiobooks, or whatever the reason, this is your time. Download away!
Yes, publishers have teamed up with SYNC for the program so no sketchy sites here.
The only ‘catch’ is books are only available for a limited time. Each week TWO titles are featured. The week runs Thursday-Wednesday at midnight EST. Miss a week? You’re out of luck. You can follow SYNC on Facebook to get weekly updates.
The audiobooks are downloaded to the Sora app. Sora is the school version of Overdrive/Libby and operates in a very similar way.
You can view the entire schedule for the season here.
I know not everyone is an audiobook fan. In this current climate, I’ve been having a difficult time focusing on reading. I have essentially infinite free time but I’ve been struggling to sit down and read. Audiobooks have been my saving grace. I imagine many people are having similar struggles.
I thought I would recommend some great audiobooks for a newbie or anyone looking a great story to take them away.
Summer is almost on us. That means Summer vacation and for many people that means family vacations. You love your kids [or younger siblings] but being stuck in a car for hours on end can be exhausting. Here’s a list of audiobook recommendations that grown ups will enjoy just as much as the under-twelve crowd.
