Audiobooks We’re Thankful For

Happy November! In a season of gratitude, we’re reflecting on how thankful we are for our customers, our bookstore partners, and, of course, audiobooks.

We asked several of our bookseller partners to share an audiobook that they’re thankful for and why they are thankful for that particular audiobook. Here are their answers:

[audiobook title=”American Wolf” isbn=”9780525493280″ author=”Nate Blakeslee” narrator=”Mark Bramhall”]”The story itself is just incredible, but Mark’s narration just took it to a whole other level. Still one of my favorite audio books of all time.” Mary, Anderson’s Bookshop[/audiobook]

He wanted to read so badly but just wasn’t able to until middle school. Somewhere we got an audible of A Dirty Job, and he found he was able to read along with the audio. It was the moment the lightbulb for reading went off for him. It’s still hard, but he loves to read and I will never forget the moment he figured out he could because of this audio.” Cindi, Ink Spell Books[/audiobook]

[audiobook title=”Spinning Silver” isbn=”9780525530992″ author=”Naomi Novik” narrator=”Lisa Flanagan”]”It is so beautifully read, with such nuance that you can even tell when the narration is changing character without it being mentioned explicitly.

I’ve loved her music for a long time but didn’t really know as much about her as I thought I did. This book is so well-researched with info from family, friends, bandmates, archives, interviews, and the MANY letters that she wrote that I feel like she is alive and telling her own story. Though it ended in tragedy, there were so many happy and uplifting times in her life. I LOVED IT!” Sarah, Iconoclast Books & Gifts[/audiobook]
