The Audies 2013

Audie AwardAnd now for the Audies! Awards for the best-produced audiobooks are presented annually by the Audio Publishers Association.  Below is a list of the 2013 winners with links to Booklist reviews when applicable. You might recognize some famous names among these narrators, including Colin Firth—let’s hope he channelled the always composed Mr. Darcy and not the stuttering King George VI for inspiration!
