I have decided to start following a blog by Mary Burkey called Audiobooker. This blog is hosted by a highly respected review source: Booklist. In addition, Mary Burkey was the head of the committee that chose the 2009 Odyssey Award winner for best audio book.
I first found out about this blog at the ALA conference this weekend. (see previous post) I am excited to learn more about evaluating audio books, as I plan to add many to my library's collection. So far, there is exactly one audio book available for checkout! At least it's from a great book: one of the Sammy Keye's mysteries. I haven't listened to it yet as it's on cassette and my new(ish) car doesn't have a cassette player.
If you want to check out the entire presentation from Sunday, and more, read audiobooker!
