2015 Discussion Challenge - What Makes A Good Audiobook
What Makes A Good Audiobook
Do you listen to audiobooks? I do. I alternate between audiobooks and music while working. I can't actually listen to an audiobook during times where I can actually read. I must be actively doing something in order for an audiobook to work for me. I think that what makes a good audiobook is obvious. The narrator. If you can not stand the narrators voice then it doesn't matter what the story is about you will not listen. Period. I forget the name of this one audiobook but the woman reading the female parts literally made my ears ring. It wasn't that her voice was particularly high it was something about her voice that hurt my ears. My favorite narrator read my favorite series of books. Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter series. Each character has a distinctive voice and the story just comes alive. I am bias since I already loved the series in physical book form but I think that if a medicore narrator did the audio it would have done as well. Anyway, that is my answer. The narrator is the key to a good audiobook experience.
What to Join? Here’s All You Have to Do:
The 2015 Book Blog Discussion Challenge runs from January 1st until December 31st, 2015.
Sign-ups will remain open until December 31st, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Central. (So, you can sign up all year long! Come join us!)
You DO NOT have to have a book blog to join this challenge. If you don’t have a book blog, you may link up to discussions that you’ve started on Goodreads groups.
Create a sign-up post announcing your intention to participate and link up below. If you do not have a blog, you can link up to your Goodreads profile. There is no need to say what your discussion posts will be about – just tell us that you’re joining and let us know what your goal is.
Please link back to both challenge hosts and include the challenge button in your sign-up posts.
Every month, we’ll update this 2015 Book Blog Challenge Page with the links to that month’s Challenge linky – so you’ll always know where to find the latest link-up!
Share it! The more people we get to participate in this, the more awesome discussions we can all be a part of and the more fun it will be! So, invite your friends to join us!
This challenge is to help get us discussing books and book blogging, so talk about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to book blogging. Discussions can be book related or book blogging related (or generally blogging related – no discussions about things that are completely off-topic like travel or fashion, etc). Discussions can also be about you personally if it’s a get-to-know-you type post.
There will be a kick-off post on January 1, 2015 on both Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight where you’ll be able to leave your links for any January discussions. At the beginning of every month, a new post will go up on both blogs for that month’s links.
If you forgot to leave your discussion link in the challenge month in which you posted the discussion or the linky list closed before you had a chance to leave it, you can leave it in a future month. (No duplicates though.)
There will also be monthly giveaways, so make sure you check in each month!
