June Is Audiobook Month (JIAM) and we are celebrating! We’re expressing our support for the audiobook industry today with an Audible membership giveaway. If you are already a member, you know this means more books for you. If you have yet to try Audible, this three-month membership requires no credit card and no commitment. Audible even has a service to set you up with your gift membership.
Today’s Audible giveaway is sponsored by All About Romance. Enter to win by commenting on this column by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on Thursday, June 14th. Usually our giveaways are limited to the U.S. and Canada. However, this Audible gift membership is open to anyone who has access to Audible in his or her area. We encourage multiple comments in our discussion but you will only be entered in the contest once. If you review for another Web site or blog, please refrain from entering. The winner will be notified by email on Friday morning and will have 24 hours to respond. Another winner will be selected on Saturday morning if the winner has not responded. The winner will be asked to provide the email address used for their current or future Audible account.

Our 2nd Annual Favorite Romance Audiobooks Poll June 18th
We’ll continue to celebrate JIAM next week with Speaking of Audiobooks’ second annual Favorite Romance Audiobooks Poll. This year it’s a new take on favorites with only a few of last year’s categories. After all, how often can you choose All Time Favorites? We’re taking a beyond the winners approach and admitting our runaway winners last year, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series and J.D. Robb’s In Death series are just that – first place winners. Now we’re looking beyond those highly popular series to discover what other favorites are lurking out there. We’ve also added some new categories making our 2012 poll truly unique. (more…)
