Audiobook Book Club

I love audiobooks! One of the problems that I always run into is trying to decide what I should listen to next. I usually have a “to be listened to” pile (an actual physical pile or a digital one in my account) that is several books deep. So unless I am in the middle of a series of books that I am totally engrossed in I will typically have a pretty difficult time picking my next listen. However this time Jason (@braincandybr) made the task a lot easier on me.

In case you haven’t heard, Jason has started a Twitter Audiobook Book club. Since I’m an audiobook addict this is right up my alley.

We are an internet (Twitter) book club that meets every THIRD Wednesday of the month to discuss a preselected audiobook title. Follow and join in the conversation with fellow audiophiles, using the twitter hashtag #abco. That’s every 3rd Wednesday from 7:00-8:00pm (est). Check the blog for contact information, title selections, updates, and general audiobook posts. – from

The first meeting is scheduled for September 15th and the first book to be selected for the audiobook book club is “Matterhorn” by Karl Marlantes. The below description is taken from

Subtitle: A Novel of the Vietnam War
Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award
New York Times Bestseller
A Barnes & Noble Summer Discover Pick
Amazon Best Books of the Month, March 2010

Matterhorn is narrated by Bronson Pinchot. This will be the first book that I have listened to that is narrated by Mr. Pinchot. It will be a struggle for me at times to not think of him as Balki (I was a huge fan of Perfect Strangers.. no joke). So far I have only listened to the brief preview on and there was no sign of the lovable shepherd from Mypos.

This book has received excellent reviews. Goodreads Reviews | Reviews I can’t wait to get started! If you would like to get involved with the book club just follow the book club on Twitter  at @audiobookbc and check the blog at

  1. That is a great idea, thanks for shouting it out. Now all I have to do is work out what time that would be in GMT. Time zones do tend to befuddle me…

    I’m just discovering the audiobook joy on Twitter. Ah, the wonders of modern technology :)
