Quinn Cummings Gives Good Book Advice

Quinn Cummings doesn't know much but she knows books. Specifically, she knows what great audiobooks should sound like. Some are for kids, some are for the whole family and some are just for you, sitting on your couch, trying to forget the rest of the family for just a few minutes. "But which are which?" If it's not immediately clear, it goes like this: kids, whole family, you, couch. Then, back to one. Have questions? Ask me on Twitter; I'm @Quinncy.
