Today is the first day of We’re Listening: Audiobook Week 2013. Hosted for the fourth year by Jen at Devourer of Books, Audiobook Week runs June 17–21. It’s a fun way to find audiobook reviewers and see what everyone’s listening to. Today’s prompt is about our audiobook year.

Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles? New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself and your general listening experience.

I’ve been listening to audio books for a few years. They are just the perfect companions for walks, runs, chores around the house. I tend to only listen to mysteries and the occasional romance, but I’m thinking maybe I should branch out since so many people seem to enjoy listening to non-fiction titles.

A couple favorites I’ve listened to in the past year:

The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny (review)

The Golden Egg by Donna Leon (review)

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus (review)

Do you listen to audiobooks? What’s one of your favorites?
