I have big news!  June is Audiobook Month.  You know that book that everyone is talking about this year?  The one that won the Pulitzer for fiction?  And that also won Audies for the best Literary Fiction Audiobook and Best Solo Narration?  YES!  The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, which has been on my TBR list for months.  I get to give it away! 

The Audio Publisher's Association, the voice of the audiobook industry, has picked my campy little blog to give away The Goldfinch, as read by David Pittu.  I recently enjoyed listening to Pittu read The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eudenides, and I am certain that you will love hearing him read this one.

A blogger was chosen to give away an Audie winner every day in June.  You can follow the giveaways on Facebook and Twitter, #audiomonth or #Audies2014.  Some blogs that my readers might want to check out are Geeky Blogger's Blog Book, which is giving away Dr. Sleep by Stephen King on June 9, Oddiophile, which is giving away the Audio Book of the Year, Still Foolin' Em by Billy Crystal on June 11, Wholly Books, which is giving away another copy of The Goldfinch on June 15, and Bookgooine, which is giving away another Pulitzer winner, Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King on June 17.

So, here are the rules:  One entry per person per day, between now and June 12 at 6:00 p.m..  A winner will be randomly chosen by Rafflecopter on June 12, and will be posted here.  I will also try to contact the winner via the email you give with your Rafflecopter entry.  If the winner does not respond within 5 days, another winner will be chosen.  The winner must have a US shipping address.  Have fun, and check out the other giveaways!  I'd also love to know what audiobooks you have loved, so please leave a comment, and tell me what books make for great listening.

Thanks to Hachette Audio for making this audiobook available to us!

  1. thank you for offering us a chance to participate, reading is so relaxing for me, I haven't tried an audio book yet, but I just signed up for the amazon site and hope to start purchasing soon.

    1. Give it a try! I usually listen on my way to and from work, and manage to hear about an hour a day, even though my communte is only 10 minutes. All those little errands add up!

  2. Great initiative. Thanks for the raffle. Love Donna Tartt.

    1. Me too! I'm definitely entering Wholly Books' Goldfinch give away on June 15! Probably wouldn't be good form for me to enter my own contest here . . .
