Armchair Audies 2015


armchairaudies-300x300

This is the fourth year of the Armchair Audies! Every year since its inaugural year in 2012, participants of the Armchair Audies choose a category of finalists from the Audiobook Publishers’ Association’s annual awards, The Audies. I’ve picked a different category each year, and not only been treated to some of the best that the audiobook industry has to offer; but expanded my listening horizons. For the first year, I listened to all the finalists in the Audio Drama category; in 2013, Children’s Audiobook (Ages 8-12); and in 2014, Humor. This year, I’ve chosen two categories: “Narration by the Author or Author(s)” and “Autobiography/Memoir.” If you are interested in joining me in this or taking another category altogether, you can sign up by contacting Jennifer (@lithousewife on Twitter) or checking out the Armchair Audies site ­čÖé

One thought on “Armchair Audies 2015

  1. I really wish I could get into audio fiction, but it’s the nonfiction I’m more drawn to with audio, for whatever reason. Maybe because it doesn’t involve characters! This looks like fun and I’m sure Sheila at Book Journey is involved! ­čÖé
