The demand for audiobooks is booming, yet materials that help listeners make choices of what to listen to have been in short supply. Read On…Audiobooks: Reading Lists for Every Taste fills that gap, helping match reader interests and mood to titles that might please them.
Written by Joyce G. Saricks, a well-known writer and speaker on readers' advisory, the book offers original annotations for more than 300 audiobook titles, grouped according to some 60 themes, fiction and nonfiction. Lists are organized by character, story, setting, language, and mood/tone. Each entry provides a plot description and discusses the appeal of the narrator. In addition to helping patrons, the book will assist librarians with collection development and listener's advisory, creating displays that include audiobooks, promoting the collection, and especially, with understanding the special dynamic that exists among listeners, narrators, and audiobooks.
