Books for Ears
Books for ears are audiobooks – recordings of someone (often more than one someone) reading a book out loud. Audiobooks are used by lots of different people – blind people, commuters, kids learning to read and more.
Who is this site meant for?
Can you answer yes to any of the following?
- I sometimes volunteer to run errands so I get to listen to more of my audiobook
- I feel panic when nearing the end of an audiobook without one waiting in the wings to take its place
- I am picky about the audiobooks I choose – I want great readers AND great stories
Ah ha – we have found you. We are like you.. and we have set out to share reviews of the audiobooks we are putting in our ears so you can find the perfect next selection for your listening pleasure. booksforears.com
Everything Audiobooks is a group for authors, narrators, listeners/ authors seeking narrators/authors seeking reviews/listeners seeking audiobooks/ sale and promote audiobooks/offer audio promo codes in exchange for a review. This group is basically anything and everything to do with audiobooks. Welcome.
Authors, please refrain from using this page to promote print and Kindle versions of a book (As those are not audiobooks) If you would like to mention that the audiobook is whisper-sync, you can include this in your post. But please do not post the Kindle versions of your book. Audible has a link on the main page for the audiobooks that are whisper-sync that the listener can select from there. Thank you. facebook.com
Goodreads Audiobooks Group
Audio & audiobooks are getting more and more popular for commuters & those wanting to squeeze in another book or two a month while doing other activities.
Here we can share good audiobook titles, discuss talented readers and even discuss the question, Is listening to audiobooks cheating? goodreads.com
This is really interesting! It’s a site for postal workers and they review books. I can’t find more background, but my guess is that, because they’re active and mobile and walk around delivering mail all day, they listen to lots of audiobooks! So cool! Who knew!? I don’t see a way to submit to them, but maybe just contact them?
PostalMag.com is dedicated to giving postal service employees the news, information, and resources they need to make their careers with the postal service as rewarding and enriching as possible. postalmag.com
Reddit Audiobooks Thread
Warning: Reddit is, (how do I put this lightly?) … hardcore. It’s not a place for the feint of heart, so be ready for some serious (constructive hopefully!) criticism.
The audiobooks subreddit is a community of audiobibliophiles sharing and looking for their next great listen. reddit.com
SFFaudio was created in 2003 by Scott Danielson and Jesse Willis. Our goal was to tell the world about the cool stuff we were listening to. Since then we’ve added a bunch more contributors, reviewers, and even an editor!
We think audio is the best medium for Science Fiction literature and drama. We’re not against the dead tree, cathode ray, and celluloid versions, we just know them to be the inferior medium for transmission of story, mood, and ideas. sffaudio.com
Solid Gold Reviewer Program
Do you have titles you’d like reviewed by book bloggers? Simply add them to our Solid Gold Reviewer listing. Bloggers from across the web regularly visit our site to see what titles they would like to review. Please note – we may not list your title if we feel it will be of little interest to our reviewers. If your title is posted as available for review, it will remain posted on our site for six months. audiobookjukebox.squarespace.com
Thank you for taking the time to gather these resources.
You’re welcome, Kristi!
Great article! I have one question – how do you send the book to the reviewer once they request it? Just a dropbox/onedrive/google drive list of mp3 files? I’m worried the ordering will get lost.
I use Authors Direct as it’s the easiest for both me and the listener.
But yes, if you were to do just files somewhere (Dropbox etc.) then just make sure you number the files easily: 01-chapter1.mp3, 02-chapter2.mp3, etc. to help with the order of the files.
this is great. I just released my first audiobook and I’m going to run these down and see which ones might be right for me!
Thanks for the note, Tom. Hey, a new kid on the block is Story Origin. Check out my podcast interview with the founder Evan Gow for more.
