Celebrate Audiobook Month!

Posted by Mariko Fujinaka in Bookselling books digital media on June 9, 2010

jiamHey, did you know that June is Audiobook Month? Well, it is, so let the festivities begin! The whole point of Audiobook Month is to promote audiobooks and to increase listenership. Get Caught Listening, part of Audiobook Community, an online network of audiobook enthusiasts and professionals, is making available six audiobook excerpts every Tuesday for the month of June. The segments can be streamed or downloaded as MP3 files.

The Audio Publishers Association (APA) has solicited a number of authors and narrators to help celebrate Audiobook Month. The participants will blog, tweet, and otherwise promote their way through June to generate interest in audiobooks. Among the authors lending a hand is David Sedaris. Sedaris has a distinct and, to many, instantly recognizable voice. He recorded some promos for National Audiobook Month. Other author advocates include Jennifer Egan, Deepak Chopra, James Patterson, Chelsea Cain, and Cory Doctorow.
