As all of you audio-bibliophiles out there know: A Good Book Speaks Volumes.
Beginning this Labor Day Weekend, the Audiobookmobile will be hitting the road along the east coast for a 5-city tour. The APA and GoGorilla Media have partnered to bring you this bright new way to introduce books to your ears.

About the Audio Publishers Association
Formed in 1987, the Audio Publishers Association (APA) is a not-for-profit trade association that advocates the common, collective business interests of audio publishers. The APA consists of audio publishing companies and allied suppliers, distributors, and retailers of spoken word products and allied fields related to the production, distribution and sale of audiobooks. The APA serves as a networking, educational and information forum for its members; delivers programs, services and awards that serve the common business interests for its members; and promotes policies and activities that accelerate audiobook awareness and industry growth. APA and its members work to bring all audio publishers together to create increased public awareness for the audiobook industry through joint publicity efforts, national consumer surveys, trade show exhibits, an association newsletter and the annual APA conference, APAC.
