My Audiobook Flowchart

If you are new to audiobooks or if you are just looking for your next read, I can help. These are the books I have listened to and enjoyed in the past year (or so) compiled into one helpful little flowchart. It’s also a pretty good summary of my audiobook life.

How To Choose Your Next Audiobook
(from my limited experiences)

[Click to enlarge – I know it’s tiny here]

Let me know which book you got in the comments! (This is better than a cootie catcher, right?)

PS – I inadvertently left off two Neil Gaiman audiobooks I loved: Stardust narrated by Gaiman and Anansi Boys narrated by Lenny Henry. But you should just all get those two anyway. Because they’re pretty amazing.


Join the fun and head on over to Devourer of Books for all of the Audiobook Week goodness.

    Love your flowchart! I’m looking forward to listening to Bossypants.

    I love this! What a neat idea. I loved reading Rebecca. How is it in audio?

      I forgot to tell you that I got Juliet, Naked or The Nobodies Album. Will have to check them out.

    This is a fantastic flowchart, with lots of great books at the end. I got Emperor of All Maladies, which I’m excited about. Thanks for sharing!

    I got Bossypants, which is one that I have been wanting to read for awhile. Thanks for the helpful flow chart!

    I got Emperor of All Maladies and Henrietta Lacks. I’ve already listened to both of them, which is a little sad, BUT I agree to their awesome-tude.

    I am currently listening to Harry Potter while running. It makes running that much more fun, I actually look forward to it because I know I will be able to listen to the books again. As you can guess, I am a new audiobook convert and so your chart is perfect for me.

      I have a post coming later this week about the relationship between running and audiobooks. Also, the HP audiobooks are fantastic.

    Hahahaha, AMAZING! I got to Right Ho, Jeeves or Bossypants. Which do you think I’d enjoy more?

    Best post ever! According to your flowchart, I should listen to The Nobodies Album as my next audiobook. And I just might!

    This is a great flowchart! I ended up with almost everything on your science side. Right now I’m re-listening to Gaiman’s American Gods so I’ll definitely add the rest of his books to my tbr list. 😉

    This flowchart rocks my world! I ended up with two (once through wasn’t enough). The first time I ended up with THE THIRTEEN TALE. The second time I ended up with REBECCA. They’re both novels I love, but I’ve never read in audiobook form. They’re on my TBR now.

    Looks like it is America, America for me as I’ve already read The 13th Tale.

    I love that flowchart! I’ll have to try it out. I never do know how to choose the next one (out of the four that I’ve listened to, that is).


  13. Melissa June 8, 2011 / 2:12 pm

    I love this chart! I’ve read almost all of the books on it and they’re all great choices.


  14. Mary June 14, 2011 / 2:23 pm

    This is great! I read Juliet, Naked and think it would be a great audiobook. I think I’m going to look for Right Ho, Jeeves.
