24/03/2021 UPDATE

Check the updated BiblioCommons list below (scroll way down) for all the Audie Award nominees and Winners. Hooray! Many are available from OPL as downloadable audiobooks but a few of note are not and the audio version of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke is not available at libraries at all!

OPL has these 5 Audie winners in print or eBook but they are not available or are delayed in audio availability due to publisher or author rights restrictions. Where it's possible for us to get the Book on CD, it is either already in the BiblioCommons list at the end of the blog or on order. 

Happy Listening!
