Audiobooks Everyone Should Hear

Last month, I came across a blog post on Stephen’s Lighthouse about a consensus cloud entitled “Books Everyone Should Read.” This post inspired us here at Midwest Tape to develop our own cloud.

After scouring through critical review sources (like Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and Library Journal), award nominees and winners (such as The Audies, Parents Choice, and AudioFile Earphones), and lists from major publications (like The New York Times, O Magazine, US Weekly, and Entertainment Weekly), Midwest Tape noted and tallied the most frequently occurring titles.

From this tallied list, we constructed our “Audiobooks Everyone Should Hear” cloud. These audiobooks have garnered the most critical praise, awards, and popularity over time.

Do you see your library’s most popular audiobook?
What audiobook do you recommend the most? Is it in our cloud?
