Audiobook Discussions: The Audie Awards

IMG_20161207_184007_065000 (1)

I have been doing a lot of audiobook listening lately and I attended a recent blogger webinar about audiobook reviewing which got me thinking more and more about audiobooks.  So I wanted to know more of what you think about them!  From there, Audiobook Discussions has been born!

Today I want to talk about the Audie Awards.  Do you know what they are?  Have you heard the announced list of nominees?

The Audie Awards are like the Oscars of the audiobook world, recognizing excellence in 26 categories of audiobook and spoken word entertainment.  These awards are put on by the Audio Publishers Association.  The winners of this 22nd year of the Audies will be announced on June 1st 2017. 

The categories this year are: Audio Drama; Autobiography.Memoir; Best Female Narrator; Best Male Narrator; Business/Personal Development; Erotica; Fantasy; Fiction; History/Biography; Humor; Inspiration/Faith-Based Fiction; Inspiration/Faith-Based Non-Fiction; Literary Fiction & Classics; Middle Grade; Multi-Voiced Performance; Mystery; Narration by the Author or Authors; Non-Fiction; Original Work; Paranormal; Romance; Science Fiction; Short Stories/Collections; Thriller/Suspense; Young Adult; and Young Listeners.

You can read the full list of nominees on this press release – there are some good ones on her – both books and narrators!  You can also check out sound clips for each of the nominees here

So have you ever heard of the Audies?  Does the fact that a specific performance or narrator won an Audie make you more likely to listen to it?
