The American Library Association’s (ALA) 2015 Annual Conference & Exhibition opened yesterday, Thursday (25th June, #alaac15), in San Francisco with something unprecedented being offered at this year’s gathering: Library SELF-e’s first-ever national curated collection is now ready, an array of 200 indie ebooks that librarians can peruse and consider carrying for their patrons to check out and read.
Big thanks to Elizabeth for letting me jump onto her blog today to tell you about it.

I can’t wait to get started recording an audio book. I’ve created an account with ACX. But before I add any recordings I have to do a lot of practicing first. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to keep a steady even toned voice when reading aloud. And on top of that, I have to stay close to the microphone. I’ve recently discovered a post at the AM Institute on other audio resources. It is an awesome and informative post. I plan to really dive into each and every suggested site. Actually, I already have. I hope you find this information helpful.
