Audiobook Giveaway!

While you are enjoying a summer of reading, don't forget my favorite way to absorb stories: through audiobooks! Four years ago this week, I was diagnosed with a condition that had the audacity to try and steal my vision. For nearly two years, the only type of "reading" I did was with my headphones. I will forever be grateful to the audiobook industry for the beautiful escape it afforded me while I lived in recovery. Until this day, I plug into an audiobook whenever I need to truly unwind, or when my symptoms dare to steal all other pleasures away (like last night, for instance).

In celebration of my diagnosis and my first steps on my road to recovery, I would like to share the joy of audiobooks with you, thanks to Hachette Audio. At BookExpo America at the beginning of the month, the good people of Hachette Audio shared some free audiobook downloads with me to bring to YOU! And, yes, you read that correctly: I have downloads - that's plural - for this giveaway there will be THREE winners, so your chances are even better than usual that you will win this prize.

Here's what each lucky winner will receive:
1. The full audiobook editions of FIVE James Patterson Books for the whole family
-Alex Cross, Run
-Private Berlin
-Second Honeymoon
-I, Funny
-Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life 

2. A Sampler Download including
