June is Audiobook Month

05 Jun

Did you guys know that June is Audiobook month? Ok, so I’m a few days late in blogging about it, but since we’re still technically in the first week, i’m safe, right? lol!

I’m a huge fan of audiobooks, especially on my commute to and from work each day (hello, I-95 traffic in NoVA and Washington DC – yes, you suck!!). Some days for me, it can be anywhere from an hour and a half to three hours to get home at night and I would probably go insane if I had to listen to the radio the entire time (honestly, there is only so much hearing about how much traffic sucks in various places before you start feeling the first signs of road rage)…just kidding 😉

Anyways, I thought over the next month, as I try desperately to get caught up on all the reviews that I have pending for you guys (lots of audiobooks and print books), that I would also throw up a couple of random posts about audiobooks. And who knows, maybe there will be some prizes involved…but hey, you got to participate first 😉

If you are on twitter, look for the hashtags #JIAM or #JIAM2012 through-out the month to chat with me, as well as other audiobook listeners, and narrators.

Now for my first question – What was the first audiobook you ever listened to?

    Doing it right now. It is Tessa Harris’ The Anatomist’s Apprentice. I am loving it..sounds like a 1940’s radio program!

    First audio book I listened to was From a Buick 8. I had a long drive and freaked myself out. Driving home at midnight listening to the creatures that came out of that garage. Great book though.
