onk.jpgAudiobooks are hot right now. It seems like nearly everyone we know listens to them. I listen to audiobooks and you probably do, too.

But which ones should we listen to? Most book recommendations come through word-of-mouth, be it from your friends, the Amazon editors, Oprah, or Reese Witherspoon.

And then there's award's season, which is another great way to find book recommendations. Here are the finalists for selected Audie categories, along with a link to all the finalists:
