Selecting Audiobooks for My TBR List

June 10, 2011

June is Audiobook Month, and for the second year, Jen over at Devourer of Books has decided to celebrate with her very own Audiobook Week! All of this week, I’m going to be joining in and posting about audiobooks, including reviews, daily topic discussions, and my own ideas about how we can use audiobooks in different ways throughout our daily lives.

Today’s topic is: Audiobook Resources

This is probably the area where I’m the least comfortable with my efforts in terms of audiobook reading. I really suck at diversifying, in terms of both what I listen to, as well as where I find things to listen to!

Truth be told, I basically find audiobooks to listen to by browsing Audible, often just looking at the sales they have going on! (I know, bad me!) Lately, I’ve been starting to use the recommendations that appear on the bottom of the pages on the site when you’re looking at books, based on what you’ve purchased before.

Aside from that, I usually either choose books that either are on my general TBR list (but seem like something that I don’t really care one way or the other about having a physical copy of for my shelves), or by seeing a review on someone else’s blog and deciding that it might make for an interesting listen.

That’s really it! Seriously!

I used to be really good about posting links to my audiobook reviews on Audiobook Jukebox, but I’ve been slacking off on that for a few months now. I just went on over and caught up, and I feel so proud of myself! (We’ll see how long that lasts.) I really wish that I could say that I get recommendations for audiobooks by browsing AJ, but I can’t say it with any honesty.

Do you have any suggestions for me? Where could I start looking for recommendations for new audiobook reads? Are there ay ways that I could improve on my current audiobook selection methods game of russian roulette?
