    This is a great addition to Web sites offering audio reviews. I believe I read that this site will be free for the first six months, but maybe I am wrong. Whatever, it’s a good resource and it’s always fun to read someone else’s review of something you have listened to (such as The Lace Reader in my case).

  2. Thank you for your kind comments about our new online magazine, the wise guide to audiobooks. Our latest issue is up online with lots of reviews of new audiobooks, a Best of 2008 list of Editors’ Choice audiobooks, and new column “Sounds Good to Me.” Check us out at and subscribe!!

    Thanks for stopping by, Jean! I love the idea for the “Sounds Good to Me” column: “SOUNDS GOOD TO ME is a new column that will highlight a personal anecdote or memorable experience involving audiobooks. Readers are invited to submit one of their own for possible future publication. If you have one you’d like to share, email it to We will be happy to hear from you and consider your piece.”

    Can’t wait to see what others send in!
