The response was once again completely overwhelming, these are just a few of the many that didn’t already feature in one of the many lists we already have over on FRA. I’ve included links to the other lists at the end. Read More

Audiobooks on… Vinyl?

By | Literature, News, Reading Formats | No Comments
Author Joe Hill (Strange Weather), has always had a hankering for the rock star life but the life of an author is far from rock and roll. Instead Hill has decided to come up with some other way of creating his own vinyl LP- by recording an audiobook instead of an album!

The vinyl recording will be narrated by actor Nate Corddry, and will feature a special cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses,” recorded specifically for the record. The Dark Carousel vinyl package will include original artwork (see below), two colourful special edition records, and a full-length download of the audiobook.

The first vinyl printing of Hill’s Dark Carousel will be for a limited 2,500 copies, and will be out on the 20th of April.

Keep an eye out here at For Reading Addicts for where to pre-order yours.
