  16. Thank you for participating in the hop. I am excited about your giveaway because I don't have any audio books yet. Actually, I've never tried one and I am not sure how I feel about "hearing" the book. I LOVED The Kite Runner and would love to read (hear, I guess) And the Mountains Echoed as well as The Other Typist. Thanks! =) Kathleen

  17. Thank you for the giveaway. I would be thrilled to win either book. mia at jacobsracing dot com

  20. Oh yes please - I may be driving back and forth between Washington and Utah and some good audio will make the drive easier.

  21. I have had The Other Typist on my to-read list for months! I am so desperate to read it, it looks amazing!

  27. Love to listen to both of these - thanks for offering them to us!

  28. Two excellent choices. I am actually listening to The Other Typist now, and enjoying it immensely! So.... if possible just put me down for the Hosseini. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  29. Both of these audiobooks sound very good. After reading your review on "And the Mountains Echoed", I have decide that even if I am not lucky enough to win, I may have to get this anyway. It sounds brilliant.

    "The Other Typist" also sounds really good. Very different from the other which is great! I love a good bit of variety in reading/listening.

    Thank you very much for the chance to enter the giveaway. I really like this blog so I'm going to make sure to check it out a bit more and read the reviews. I have a feeling I can use them to fill my need to read list quite nicely.

    I hope everyone has a very nice day/night wherever you may be.

    Shelly H.

  30. Oh JoAnn, this is a wonderful giveaway! Thank you! Both of these books are on my TBRs (to be read soon!) list. I want to explore audiobooks, too, so if I win, I'll have a good reason to listen!

    I'm just getting back to blogging after being sick for a while so I missed joining in my favorite book blog hop...I'll have to make my next one extra-special!

    Please include me in your giveaway. Thank you!
