Would you listen to Ep. 1: Best Audiobooks of 2017 (Audicted) again? Why?
What about the narrator’s performance did you like?
Enjoyed the banter, but made it difficult to follow sometimes.
Any additional comments?
I listen to Audible either in the car, or while I am working, including this series. It would be very beneficial to me if each edition had an accompanying pdf with links to the books discussed in that edition.

This is an Audible podcast. Perfect length for a commute at around 34 minutes. In this episode, the Editors recap which audiobooks made the cut for Audible's Best of 2017 list, and they briefly discussed how they came up with those titles.
This was a super fun listen for me. These Editors have infectious enthusiasm for each of the audiobooks they discussed, and that is exactly what I wanted to hear. They actually made me reconsider listening to one or two audiobooks that weren't on my radar before now plus I now plan to re-listen to one in my own library that I didn't particularly enjoy the first time because of how much they loved it. I'm impressed!
They do mention quite a few audiobooks during the podcast, so if we want to go back and get a list of what was discussed during each episode, that information has been made available here: https://www.audible.com/ep/Audicted
After I finished this first episode, I subscribed to Audicted so each episode will be delivered directly to my library. Loved this one and highly recommend it to people who just generally love audiobooks as much as I do.
