Audiobook Contest: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

Posted by Irish in Books for Free, Contest, Misc13 Comments

Regular readers will know that I recently listened to an audiobook version of Diane Setterfield’s book The Thirteenth Tale (my review). I loved the narration of this audiobook and I would like to share it with one of you. So I am giving away my copy of the audiobook.

Just a few condition notes…the CDs are all in good condition and play well. The audio has been listened to twice, once by me and another by a friend. The box is a little beat up from being tossed about in cars and bags….and one of the inner CD sleeves may have you craving coffee as one afternoon while making a coffee run for work some of that necter of the gods spilled onto the open sleeve. Just thought I would make that known before stating the rules of entry…this is a used audio CD but it still plays and really isn’t that all that matters?

Now for the entry rules:

  • To get one entry please leave a comment below.
  • Get an additional entry by listing on of your favorite audiobook narrators
  • A third entry can be obtained if you blog about this contest (please leave a comment or URL here if you do).
This contest will be open until Saturday, 06 September, with a winner drawn randomly from all entries on Sunday, 07 September and announced in either my weekly Sunday Salon post or in a separate blog entry (I haven’t decided yet). This contest is also open to anyone who chooses to enter.

Thanks for looking and good luck to everyone who enters!

    I have already read this book, but I loved it (my favorite read this year, for sure). And I ADORE audiobooks. My favorite narrator is Nathaniel Parker. I loved his rendition of the Artemis Fowl books. I also loved the audiobook of Phillip Pullman’s The Dark Materials, but it was more of an ensemble. I know I’ve already read this, but I would love to win the audiobook. Thanks for the chance!!

  2. Jennifer

    This was my favorite book that I read last year (along with Garden Spells). My favorite narrator is Kate Reading who narrated The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig and The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Thanks!

    I have this book on my wish list – and I am just discovering the beauty of audio books – so I would love to be entered 🙂

    I bought a copy of this book at a Friends of the Library sale, but, realistically, I may never ever get to it. Listening to the audio would be a good way to get to it a bit faster.

    I don’t generally get audio books anywhere except from My favorite narrator there is Karen Savage. She did a superb job both with Pride and Prejudice and The Little Princess.

  5. Gwendolyn

    I would love to listen to this book. I’m new to audio books, so I don’t have a favorite reader as yet . . . but I have a looong commute! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’d love to win this audiobook. My husband listens to them on long commutes. I think I need to try listening while doing housework!

  7. MonieG

    I would love to win this for my husband. He’s a truck driver and listens to any type of audio book to make the time pass. One of our favorite narrators is Jeremy Davidson. He narrates a lot of thrillers.
    I posted about your giveaway on my blog Reading With Monie.

    Oh, please enter me in the drawing! I loved the quote about “reading can be dangerous” … I imagine even an audiobook can be dangerous, if listening while driving!

    I haven’t listened to any audiobooks, and your description of the voices/accents and the story itself makes me think that *The Thirteenth Tale* would be a great place to start!
