Awards season isn’t over with the Oscars -- the Audie Awards, honoring the best audiobooks in 24 categories, will be announced March 4th.  Country Bookshelf booksellers weigh in on their favorites of the nominees for this year:

Calypso by David Sedaris: “This was actually my first ever Sedaris book and I loved it the whole way through. David has an impeccable sense of comedic timing and a lovely voice for narration so having him read the book was the perfect choice." - Harry Jahnke “Funny, poignant and truly the only good way to read David Sedaris” - Kris Chavez Calypso was also a favorite title for our owner, Ariana Paliobagis.

The Good Neighbor by Maxwell King: “A wonderful book about a wonderful man read by one of the greatest talents in reading out loud, the legend LeVar Burton. A nearly perfect book. - Harry Jahnke

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik: “I love me some twisted fairy tales and the voice acting work that accompanied this one kept me engaged from beginning to end.” - Harry Jahnke  “This is the first audiobook I ever listened to and I was hooked! Tastefully done and totally captivating.” - Kasey Kane

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi: “One of the better young adult books I've read in a long time. The narrator did a great job at emoting and acting out the struggles of our characters.” -Harry Jahnke  “The voice actor was great at capturing the emotion of each character and you were able to get lost in the story.” - Kris Chavez

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee: “An often funny and heart-wrenching adventure with perfect casting for narrator.” - Harry Jahnke
