2006 Audie Awards

The bibliomaniac in me loves audio books. This way, I can do all my hated household chores, exercise, cook, whatever and get to listen to the latest bestseller or classic novel or whatever else strikes my fancy, AT THE SAME TIME!! How is that for multitasking?! (Although I do not recommend trying to do the crosswords and listen at the same time as I end up having to listen to chapters again…) Anyway, you should give it a try…last Friday (5/19) the Audio Publishers Association announced their 2006 Audie Awards winners for tons of various categories. The complete list is available at www.audiopub.org. Some of the winning titles include:

Thanks for the information. My mother listens to audio books and I am sometimes at a loss at what to pick out for her.
