Audiobook Grammy Nominees

Announced last night: Adult titles vying for recognition as 2011’s best by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. Sadly, there’s no Children’s category – they killed that off last April. Here’s the five finalists:

Catagory 51: Best Spoken Word Album (Includes Poetry, Audiobooks & Story Telling)

Bossypants, Tina Fey (Hachette Audio) (Check to see if this free download offer is still in effect!)

Fab Fan Memories – The Beatles Bond, Various Artists / Nathan Burbank, Bryan Cumming, Dennis Scott & David Toledo, producers(WannaBeats Records)

Hamlet (William Shakespeare), Dan Donohue & Various Artists Oregon Shakespeare Festival(Blackstone Audio)

If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won’t), Betty White (Penguin Audio)

The Mark Of Zorro, Val Kilmer & Cast(Blackstone Audio)

You can check out the complete list of nominations in this press release. Great ideas for new listens or for a fresh display in the library audio-visual department or website!
