June is Audiobook Month Kick-off & Giveaway! #JIAM


June is Audiobook Month!

Are you ready to celebrate June is Audiobook Month?  We are huge audiobook fans, so this has become one of our favorite times of the year.  I've seen a big increase in people checking out audiobooks this year, and I want to do everything I can to help spread the word even more.  We will be tweeting #JIAM all month, so make sure you check out that tag to find all the goodies!

So what do we have planned this month?

  • Our favorite Audiobooks Giveaway:   Every few days, in the month of June, we will be hosting a giveaway for one of our all-time favorite audiobooks.
