Audiobook Week 2013 – Day 5: Finding Audiobooks

Audiobook Week 2013 – Day 5: Finding Audiobooks

Day 5 of  Audiobook week 2013 topic: Friday: Finding audiobooks Where do you learn about great audiobook titles? Buy your audiobooks? Share your secrets with the rest of us! We’d particularly love to know what narrators or publishers are active in social media or do a great job communicating with listeners.    Julie’s Thoughts I usually learn about great audiobooks from reviews and friends recommendations. I don’t usually buy them, since they cost a lot more than the print or ebook. I get them straght to my smartphone from the library via overdrive, my audiobooks.com streaming account, and in the summers from Sync.  I… Read more »

Audiobook Week 2013 – Day 4: Audiobook Tasks

Day 4 of  Audiobook week 2013 topic: Thursday: Audiobook Tasks What do you do while you listen? Any particular tasks or games that you find amazing for audio time?    Julie’s Thoughts Almost all of my audiobook listen time is spent driving. My drive is 45 minutes to an 1.5 hours depending on traffic. I’ve also recently started listening while working out on my elliptical machine. That helps pass the time! Sometimes I’ll listen at home while doing some chores around the house but not very often. Also, sometimes when I’m having a really slow day at work and no one will… Read more »

Read by Joy Osmanski. I’m listening through my audiobooks.com account.   Impressions: I’m not super impressed with this narration so far.

Audiobook Week 2013 – Day 2: Choosing Audiobooks

Day 2 of  Audiobook week 2013 topic: Tuesday: How do You Choose Your Audiobooks? How do you decide what you’ll listen to? Do you mostly listen, or split time between listening and reading? Particularly if you split time, how do you decide what you’ll consume in audio and what in print?    Julie’s Thoughts If an audiobook is available to me via my audiobooks.com streaming  membership, I’ll listen to that versus getting a print or ebook copy for convenience. Certain books though I want in print so I’ll get that version and read that version instead. As far as picking books,… Read more »
