Audiobook Week 2012 Giveaway

Note: images may be slow to load since there are so many in this post.
This Giveaway is to Celebrate Audiobook Week 2012 - which started 6-25 so I am jumping in at the end of the week.
I try to listen to at least two books a week on my MP3, on tape or on CD in the car.  I have had a subscription since 2006 at Audible.com that provides me two Audible picks each month.  I have a library now of 610  Even my DH, who is NOT a reader, will listen to certain Audible or audio books. Check out the great posts Sheila at Book Journey did rejecting excuses for not listening to audiobooks!  She has a giveaway too. :-)
Also check out the interesting Audio Drama Audiobook giveaway, other audio giveaways and discussion posts at the celebration host site: Devourer of Books.

For this Giveaway I am  GIVING AWAY THREE PRIZES:
#1:  Open Worldwide: An MP3 Player to get you started listening to Audios!!

For some reason this picture is fuzzy - you can see the real picture at this link.
The winner will get to pick either blue or red (I already have the players in my office.)

#2 Pick of a larger Audiobook - open to US only.

#3 Pick of a smaller Audiobook - open to Canada or International with the proviso that I reserve the right to award a $10.00 GC if the postage would exceed that amount.

TO ENTER: 
1.  Comment telling me about an audio book you love; or tell me why you have never tried audio but are ready to. :-)
2.  Plus extra entries - up to three - for any Audio, Audible or AudioBook Jukebox review you comment on. Let me know where you commented for extra credit. 

This giveaway ends July 6, 2012 10PM Central.

Note: Many of the CD audiobooks below have been review books. The others are from my own shelves.

  1. I confess - I am totally new to audio books. I have actually contemplated trying them out in blog posts, but somehow I still have small dozbts whether I might enjoy them. I kinda like my reading voice (the one I have in my head while reading) and I'm just not sure if a narrator would spoil the "reading" or not. Yet I would love to try it out some day, I'm curious after all!

  3. The bestest audiobook I've listened to thus far is the Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris, narrated by Alyssa Bresnahan. It was free for download at the library so I downloaded it... and I'm hooked, line and sinker!

    Thank you for the chance to win! :)

  4. The only Audio books I have listened to are for children & the stories were on a CD, so I guess they don't count.
