    Welcome to the end of 2012, an interesting year in the world and a spectacular year in the world of audio books. We saw a wealth of biographies penned by musicians, of course a flood of political titles, and fiction for every taste. Today Maggie Linton and I do our best to narrow it all the way down to our favorite titles of the past year. For me it was a choice between longtime favorite authors like Jasper Fforde and Ellis Avery and the topical humor of Lizz Winstead. Ultimately I had to agree with the folks who chose the Man Booker winner and pick Hillary Mantel’s stunning visit to the Tudor court, Bring Up the Bodies.
