However, almost anyone can "read" an audio book. In fact, there are annual “Audie Awards” given each year since 1996 by the Audio Publishers Association for commercial audio books.
Summer is a great time for reading, so why not try reading an audio book? Some new titles available to eligible registered TLBPH patrons that may also be available as commercial audio books from your public library include:
- You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner, by Joel Osteen
- The Double Fudge Brownie Murder, by Joanne Fluke
- Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story, by Rick Bragg
- The Last Dickens, by Matthew Pearl
All of these are also available as commercial audio books, either on CD or from audible.com. Your public library may have or be able to obtain these audio titles for you.
The State Library and Archives is a division of the Tennessee Department of State and Tre Hargett, Secretary of State.
