Love to suggest great audiobooks? Take a look at my “Voices in My Head” column in this month’s Booklist, which features a host of all things audio to celebrate “June is Audiobook Month.” Here’s the link:

No matter if you’re a busy librarian helping patrons find the next great listen, or if you’re an audiobook addict gathering ideas for your listening list – you’ll find some tips for finding gold in the ever-increasing number of audio releases. Audiobook experts Jessica Moyer & Renee Young stop by with advisory expertise, and I share the secrets of mining Booklist Online for the best in audiobooks. Plus, you’ll find info about NoveList’s terrific new Audio Appeal Terms, and reminders about my Audiobook Lexicon and “Sounds Good to Me: Listening to Audiobooks With a Critical Ear.” So be sure to read “Audiobook Advisory” and help spread the audio gospel!
