Listener’s List Male Narrators ~ The Results Are In!

Once again, the Listener’s List narrator poll was a resounding success! The first five male narrators have been selected, but every narrator on the list received listener love.

How audiobooks became “acceptable” was a case of necessity being the mother of revamping my values.  Bedtime has never been a smooth process in […]
