You may have heard by now that June is Audiobook month. I personally love audiobooks – I have an hour commute to and from work each day, and that gives me lots of time to listen in the car. I also love bringing along a kids’ or YA audiobook on road trips with my two daughters to help pass the time. If you’ve been thinking about trying an audiobook but haven’t yet given them a chance, read on to see how you can enter to win 3 audiobook downloads. And in case you need some suggestions to get you started, here are a few of my favorites that I think almost anyone would enjoy.
If you’ve never tried an audiobook, a great place to start is with the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – narrated by the fantastic Jim Dale. These books not only appeal to all ages, but Jim Dale’s narration is an absolute delight. He has a wonderful talent for bringing each character to life in a unique way, and the wizarding world of Harry Potter presents a perfect opportunity for him to showcase this ability. I re-listen to these books at least once a year.
Another good choice is Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie – narrated by David Suchet. Anyone who has followed this blog for a while probably knows that Agatha Christie is one of my very favorite authors. I also enjoy the BBC America Poirot series, so hearing one of my favorites read by the man who plays Poirot on screen is a real treat for me. There are several Agatha Christie audiobooks read by David Suchet, and just as many read by Hugh Fraser, who plays Captain Hastings. If you are a fan, these audiobooks are as much fun as watching the series on TV.
Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, read by David Colacci – the first book in the Agent Pendergast series – is another great choice. Action, adventure, and a hint of the paranormal make for an exciting story sure to hold your attention. David Colacci does a great job reading this novel.
