Last week Stephen King received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Audio Publishers Association in recognition for his achievements in the audiobook industry at the 2020 Audie Awards. In his acceptance speech, King said of audiobooks: “I listen to my own books – the reason why is because you can hear everything you did right and everything you did wrong.
