The Audio Publishers Association has announced the finalists for the 2008 Audie Awards.

“Finalists are selected for each category and from each group of finalist one winner is awarded. Finalists will be notified in March 2008, and showcased to the industry-at-large on the APA website, press releases and in association materials. Winners will be recognized at The AudiesĀ® gala on May 30, 2008.”

It’s a long and diverse list, including categories for children’s books, mystery, classic and literary fiction, and many others. Neil Gaiman is nominated for three different works, and Stephen Colbert, Jenna Bush, and Ronald Reagan are also among the nominees.

Audio books are seeing a steady gain in popularity – why not showcase achievement in this field with a printed list of Audie Award finalists together with a batch of nominated audio books?

An unorthodox way to shelve audio books, this can be a solution where space is in short supply, especially for materials that are all of the same height.

  • Pro: titles are easy to read
  • Cons: no face-out display, must be kept very tidy
