Armchair Audies Recap ~ 4/24/2012

There has been a lot of activity surrounding the Armchair Audies since the first of the month. When we first started this adventure, it felt like The Audies were far off in the distance. At this point, I think we are all very much aware of just how close they are. The awards are just under 6 weeks away.¬†As you can see below, we’ve published 20 reviews since April 2nd. We are making great progress!

I think I’ve always known that this was a pretty grand undertaking, compiling all of these reviews and seeing them listed here in this post has brought it home to me. The Audies are really going to be special this year.

For those participants who have yet to post a review, no need to panic. Just listen and review when you can. If there is anything you need from me, please feel free to ask. I’ll help in any way that I can.

Here are the latest reviews for the Armchair Audies 2012!

        I have been living under a rock, covered with dirt for months…. how have I not heard about the audies?!!

        Audio is how I get most of my reading done – love it.

        I adored Emily and Einstein, wasn’t it a refreshing listen (a delightful story).
