Audiobooks in the News


Fantastic article in the New York Times: “Serious Listening” by John Schwartz. Sean Pratt, Oliver Wyman,  Jeannie Berlin, and Katherine Kellgren, Booklist “Voice of Choice” honoree, are the narrators mentioned in the article, which highlights the pleasures of delving into the joys of literary fiction via the  audiobook experience. Audiobook fans will all have their favorite story of how an expert narrator illuminated a murky text – and newbies will find a wonderful “to be listened” list from the featured titles. Kudos to the NYT for yet another in the paper’s most excellent audiobook coverage in this coming Sunday’s Book Review section!
