You probably already know that we here at The Starry-Eyed Revue have a deep-seated love for audiobooks. And we try to share that passion here on the blog. We review a lot of what we listen to here, and we love to share recommendations. We've even converted a couple peeps. (Sorry for the new addiction, Lisa!) And we loathe when we hear audiobooks referred to as cheating. For us, there is just something about having a good story narrated to us, to experience different voices and accents as they tell the story that we most likely would have rushed through on our own.
If you've been paying attention, you probably also know that SYNC has kicked off its annual summer program pairing YA audiobooks with similar classics. This program is completely free, but each pairing is only offered for a week. (Which reminds us, we still need to download last week's titles! Oops!) We'll be highlighting each week's offerings on the Thursday that the titles are posted for download, including links, so there's no reason to miss out on this awesome program. Unless, of course, you're not an advocate for audiobooks. :(
Either way, we're kicking off Audiobook Month -- a little late, but Jen's been sick, so cut us some slack, okay? -- with a giveaway! Three physical audiobooks on CD are up for grabs: All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin, The Fox Inheritance (book #2 in the series) by Mary E. Pearson, and Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan. Only The Fox Inheritance is new in the box, but the other two were only listened to once for reviewing purposes*. Also, we haven't decided whether to award all three to one winner or one each to three different winners. We suppose it depends on the number of entries...or the amount of begging. ;0)
*Thanks to Macmillan for providing the audiobooks offered in this giveaway.

We hope that you love audiobooks as much as us, and that if you don't yet, you will after this month! =)
Thanks for stopping by & happy reading, er, listening! :D
