Booklist Names Top Ten Audiobook Biographies for #audiomonth

Listeners love a good biography, one of the most popular audiobook genres. If you are looking for your next great listen, try the titles on this list, which includes celebrity memoirs, autobiographies and scholarly studies, published over the past two years. You’ll find something perfect for drive-time enjoyment, whether a two hour listen for around town  or one just made for a marathon cross-country trip at 37 hours! One of my personal favorites from last year’s on the list:  Still Foolin’ ’Em: Where I’ve Been, Where I’m Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys , written & read by Billy Crystal – so funny & heart-warming. Here’s the link to the whole Top Ten list:
