Best Good AudioBooks by AudioBook Awards [ 2009 – 2019]


I am always interested in award winners. I check out the Emmys to see what television shows are worth checking out and the Oscar nominations for movie suggestions. When looking for audiobook recommendations based on various criteria, I check out The Audies awarded by the Audio Publishers Association.

Every year the Audio Publisher’s Association presents The Audies – the Academy Awards for Audiobooks.
