June is Audiobook Month, which means that it’s the perfect time for indie booksellers to introduce audiobooks to their customers. Each week of Audiobook Month, digital audiobook company Libro.fm will be sharing new content on its blog and on social media to help listeners celebrate the month in true bookish style.
Here are the weekly details for Audiobook Month:
Week 1,: June 1-9: Customers can get their first audiobook for free when they start a Libro.fm membership. Libro.fm has handpicked some of the top audiobooks of the summer and will be sharing them during this week.
Week 2, June 10-16: Libro.fm will be posting title recommendations from expert booksellers. This week, listeners are also encouraged to share the audiobooks they are loving on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the hashtag #Librofmlisten. Libro.fm may even share those suggestions on the company’s social media pages.
Week 3, June 17-23: This week will focus on the unique advantages audiobooks can offer. Libro.fm will also share information on their new Kids Club and YA Club during this week. The clubs are free to join and no commitment is required, and new members can enjoy fresh picks for their inaugural month, all at $10 or less; picks will be delivered each month starting June 1. Listeners can find out more about the Libro.fm Kids Club and the Libro.fm YA Club on Libro.fm’s website.
