It’s Audiobook Month!

June Audiobook Month

June is Audiobook Month as designated by the Audiobook Publishers Association. The APA’s website mentions a few ways for audiobook fans to get involved and spread audiobook awareness. The APA’s mission is as follows, quoted directly from their site:

Formed in 1987, the Audio Publishers Association (APA) is a not-for-profit trade association that advocates the common, collective business interests of audio publishers. The APA consists of audio publishing companies and allied suppliers, distributors, and retailers of spoken word products and allied fields related to the production, distribution and sale of audiobooks.

APA:

Advocacy: Promote policies and activities to create greater awareness and accelerate audiobook industry growth.

Events: Deliver programs and services that serve the common business interests for all members.

Networking: Serve as a networking, educational, and informational forum for members. 

Standards: Advocate and guide for high quality production value. 

Some ways of promoting and connecting with other listeners include diving into the following hashtags.

#loveaudiobooks
#audiobooks
#JIAM

Below is a quick guide to some of our audiobook related posts.

This year marks the second year that we’re participating in the Audiobook Challenge as a team. This challenge is hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens. Check out our goals for this year, and see how we fared in last year’s challenge. And it’s never too late to join this challenge if you’re interested.

Last year, I took the opportunity to make some of June’s Top Ten Tuesday challenges fit in with Audiobook month, as well as sharing ten speculative podcasts that readers might enjoy.

We were very fortunate to feature an interview with one our favorite audiobook narrators, Simon Vance, during June last year.

  1. I did not know it was Audiobook month ❤ I just started listening to audios more and I'm falling in love! I just finished listening to Mitch Albom's The First Phone Call From Heaven. He narrates and does a fantastic job!

  2. I had forgotten this was audiobook month. I haven’t been listening to audiobooks much so far this year. I’m hoping to in the second half of the year since I have some audiobooks I really want to get to.

    You all have done lots of great reviews and posts. It really makes a difference to have a good resource to find narrators and books to listen to.

    • I agree. It really does help when there are resources out there, especially for audiobooks, since they can be very hit or miss, and I’m glad to hear that we could be of some assistance in that area. 😀
