Audiobook Month

Listen Up! June is National Audio Book Month

Did you know June is National Audio Book Month? Since 2008, the Audio Publishers Association has encouraged readers to “get caught listening” during the month of June.  So pop in those audio CD’s during a family car trip or while you’re stuck in rush hour traffic, and listen to something you wouldn't mind sharing with the world! Don’t forget - every minute you listen counts as participation in our Summer Reading Program.

Never tried an audiobook before? What better time to start than now?  Check out a few of the resources HCPL offers to help you find just what you are looking for:


June is Audiobook Month, so it is a good time to experiment with challenging your reading group to become a listening One For the Moneygroup. Audio can help make the most of time in today's multi-tasking world. Just think -- you can listen while you drive, exercise, cook, or clean! In addition to asking the regular book club discussion questions, you can talk about whether or not the story worked well on audio. Did it add or detract from the experience of the book? Did the narrator's voice "fit" the character or the locale? Did the choice of a male vs. a female narrator affect your listening experience? If you haven't listened to an audio book before, I recommend one of my favorite series: Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries, starting with One for the Money. The story is set in New Jersey, and the accent of the narrator brings the books alive.
