In June, Adults have a chance to win a gift card if you listen an audiobook—any audiobook—either from one of our e-audio services or on CD. Below are some suggested titles put together by staff and using the NoveList database, which you can use as well here. Most are Audie winners (the Audie Awards being the top honor for audiobooks) or favorites of the staff. Your selection for the drawing doesn’t need to come from this list—it’s just some suggestions if you want help picking an audiobook.

To find out more about The Year of Reading Challenge, check out my blog here. Ready to dive in? Sign up on Beanstack here. It’s never too late to register!


PS For those of you who have already registered and received an email with this information yesterday, sorry about the subject line! I forgot to change last month’s so it still said Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, but it is, in fact, a list of audiobooks. Oops!
