Q
What are your thoughts on audio books?
A

I like them. I don’t listen to them very often, but that’s just because I find it is slower than if I just read the book myself. I actually really like to borrow them from the library, electronically, and listen to the mp3 by connecting my phone in the car or with headphones. It’s nice to do with a book I don’t have any rush in finishing.
A great audiobook is as much about the quality of the story as it is about the narrator. The narrator can make or break a good audiobook. Think: Neil Gaiman reading *any* of his books. He’s an excellent one if you’re venturing into the world of audiobooks.

Our ALA event recap is posted! We chatted with so many great authors and publicists, and are so excited about the upcoming YA season.

We also have giveaways for the #heiroffire tote tote (international) and the ARCs pictured!
