It’s undeniable—there’s just something special about holding a physical book versus reading off a screen. But there’s also something especially remarkable about being able to read (or listen) wherever you are, whenever you want. A morning commute becomes an opportunity to listen to another chapter in the book you just can’t put down. Audiobooks have transformed the way we read and we, at Baker & Taylor, are embracing it fully.
Here are some of our favorite audiobooks this year…
Sing, Unburied, Sing | Jesmyn Ward
This story is full of emotion from the beginning to the end. It’s a story about a very hope and struggle, as well as giving us a glimpse of still living in the rural South. I enjoyed the audiobook because it added additional feeling to each of the characters as they shared their stories. — Patti Logan, Pricing & Promotions Specialist
Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders
This experimental novel, loosely based on the son of Abraham Lincoln’s death, features so many characters that I found myself getting lost when reading it on the page. With the audiobook, though, I got to explore each character more deeply. As I got to know all the voices, I was hooked. Lincoln in the Bardo is truly a unique read that is only enhanced on audio. — Emma Way, eMarketing Specialist
