When you listen to as many audiobooks as I do, you get familiar with some of the voices. Some audiobook performers are incredibly prolific, and you might even recognize some of them from film or television work, too! My favorite narrators, though, are the performers whose voices and mannerisms seem perfectly suited to the works that they read. One such narrator is Xe Sands.

June is Audiobook Month! Caitlin, our resident audiobook aficionado and book selector for our Brilliant Books Monthly Audio subscribers, shares five reasons why she loves audiobooks.

Caitlin knows a thing or two about audiobooks. She's our designated audiobook selector for Brilliant Books Monthly's audio edition, and listens to two or three books a week just for fun. But as much as she loves audiobooks, there are a few things about them really make her mad. The biggest one is Audible Exclusives.
Lots of books are good no matter how you experience them—audio, print, and even digital versions might be equally appealing in those cases. But sometimes one medium just shines above the rest. That's the case for these audiobooks, where the performances and engineering add a little something extra we think you might miss if you read them only in print!
As 2020 (finally!) winds to a close, the best-of-the-year lists have begun to pop up, including lots featuring the year's top books you won't want to miss. For those of us who prefer to experience our books via audio, check out AudioFile Magazine's recommended listening for this year's top books!

Stuck in quarantine or isolation? Audiobooks are your best friend, especially downloadable digital audio. You've got thousands of books at your fingertips without leaving the house! As the book selector for Brilliant Books Monthly audio, I get through a lot of these myself, so for anyone looking for a book to start with, I put together a few recommendations you might enjoy.
That's why we work in the other direction.
