Friday Giveaway – Fall from India Place by Samantha Young

India place

Our giveaway winner is…txdee.

Exciting news this week. We will now be working with Tantor Audio reviewing audiobooks for them. I was going to list some of the great authors whose books are recorded by Tantor, but it was turning into a really long list. I was really excited to see how many of my favorites were listed on their website.

I’ve been given the green light to share the MP3 discs sent to me for some audiobook giveaways. (Read: Used MP3 Giveaways). We will also have the occasional Tantor sponsored giveaways as well.

Update: I will also be working with Brilliance Audio as well so a new TBL list will been to be made. :)

I listen to almost as many books as I read. I was introduced to audiobooks by a friend after my children were born and I complained about my lack of reading time. Patty Jane's House of CurlI was very hesitant to give it a try since the idea of someone reading a book to me stopped when I was five. I still remember the cassettes (yes, I said cassettes) that she gave me, it was “Patty Jane’s House of Curl.” It was a bit of an odd story, but still enjoyable. Now, years later, I have my favorite narrators as well as favorite authors.

My question for you this week: Do you listen to audiobooks?

Giveaway ends Thursday, June 19th. Open to U.S. residents, 18 years and older.

The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street and Down London Road returns with a story about letting go of the past and learning to trust in the future…

When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.…

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

About Lucy Dosch

I am working mother of two beautiful girls with an obsession for reading. I now carry my Nook everywhere I go and I am ready to read at any given time, whether waiting in line at car pick up, waiting for dinner to cook, or once the kids are finally settled for the night.

  1. I haven’t tried audio books but I just got one and need to figure out when to try it out. I’m not sure how good I am at a listening, I tend to do other things so I’m afraid I will miss parts of the story.

  2. I usually listen in the car and sometimes I even listen when I am cleaning and once when I was painting. Haven’t figured out how to listen while I am gardening without subjecting the neighbors to a hot love scene.

  3. sometimes

  4. Congrats, Lucy! I cannot do audio books. I get distracted and my mind wanders. Lol.
    Please don’t enter me in this contest as I already have the book. :)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I enjoy making quilts by hand but you can imagine how tedious that can become. Audiobooks are the perfect companion, providing me with hours of pleasure–thank goodness, my fingers seem to do just fine on autopilot! I also listen to books while I drive whenever I have to make a long commute. I look forward to reading your reviews.

  6. I haven’t even listened to audio books but I’m up for it. :) thanks for the chance!

Talk books with me. Tell me what you think.
