Audiobook Tuesdays

22 May

Books get published on Tuesdays. By that I mean that new books come out on Tuesdays. Don’t ask me why the publishers do this. They just do.

Because publishers publish on Tuesdays, I know that, when I get up Tuesday morning, I will have a message from my local library. You see, I am not an audiophile, I am an audiobookphile. I always have the maximum number of audiobooks on hold – sometimes I even exceed the maximum because I recommend books for purchase. When you recommend a book for purchase, you are automatically placed on its hold list, even if your holds are already maxed!!! Biblioheaven

This morning, when I got up, there were two new, just released audiobooks waiting for me. They are downloading to my iPad as I write. And I already added two books from my wishlist to my holds list, so my holds are maxed again and all is right with the world.

My next recommended book comes out in two weeks.

In the meantime, I have 19 other holds to think about and several borrowed books to get through. The last month of driving to and from work will be just delightful!

    Biblioheaven made me laugh out loud. What a perfect way to build your book knowledge while doing something else.

    Talk about Heaven on earth. Better to be maxed out on audiobooks that credit cards.

    I love your posts! My book club is ready to select books for the coming year do you have any recommendations?. Our group is between 40’s to late 60’s. You are so much more current than I am. Thanks, Diane

    Sounds great! I am not an audiobook lover. I do enjoy listening to podcasts though. Maybe you’d enjoy this story…http://www.cbc.ca/radio/podcasts/missing-murdered-who-killed-alberta-williams/

    I have not listened to season 1 yet, but season 2 is quite a story! I will listen to the last episode tonight. 🙂

    I wonder if the reason books come out on Tuesdays is similar to why we slice on Tuesdays. “Seinfeld” claimed Tuesdays had no feel. Maybe it is a way to put some excitement into readers’ weeks.

      I listen to audiobooks all the time! I always have one going in our van, and it makes a huge difference when I am so into a story!
