Audiobooks are only as good as their narrators, and who better to bring a book to life than the author? These are thirteen of my favorite audiobooks narrated by the authors themselves; I can’t wait to hear what you’d add to the list.
I couldn’t resist including my brand new book I’d Rather Be Reading, just out Tuesday, because I narrated it myself. (Fun fact: while it’s not the norm for authors to narrate their own books, I was chosen to narrate mine because listeners know my voice from What Should I Read Next?)
For more info on getting started with audiobooks, check out the beginner’s great big guide to audiobooks. We also have some great audiobook posts in the archives; I especially like 15 audiobooks that enhance your reading experience and 10 audiobooks so good you’ll want to fold another load of laundry, finish washing the dishes, or just sit in the driveway for 5 more minutes.
The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent A Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun
