I’m so excited to welcome Kate Sample to the blog today! Kate has a beautiful voice and is a talented voice over artist. Kate is sharing her thoughts on how audio can really bring a book to life.

Audio Really Brings Books to Life

by Kate Sample

We asked Kate for her top audio book picks.  She chose the following primarily to showcase narrator skill and diversity.  Plus samples (no pun intended) can be heard on sites like www.audible.com.

Audio picks

Meryl Streep narrating Heartburn by Nora Ephron, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, and The Testament of Mary by Colm Toibin.  Jim Dale narrating the Harry Potter series.  Simon Jones narrating The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.  Judi Dench narrating Winnie-the-Pooh.
