Rasheed The Windup Girl removed because print edition was added.

Dear Poppy, please search for one one of its audio editions such as ISBN: 1441866876 and then add that one.

Rasheed Same goes for whoever added the print editions of Hitch-hiker's Guide, Caves of Steel, Dune, Minority Report, Old Man's War and Armor.

There are two ways to add the audio editions:

1st method:
When you rate a book and add it to your shelf, make sure it's the audio edition. If not you can click on the audio edition and select "switch to this edition" above your rating/review. Then when you are searching to add books from your shelves, you'll be adding the edition you rated.

2nd method:
Go to the book page, click on the audio edition and copy its ISBN. Then when you are adding it to this list, search for it by that ISBN rather than its name. That way you'll add the audio edition.

Hope it's clear. There are a lot of other "best audiobook" lists but you can't tell which recording or narration people are voting for, or - in some cases - if the book has an audio version at all!

Also, if the print additions are added, this list will show on the that particular print edition page of the book only. So when someone rates or adds the audio edition to his shelf, he won't see on the book's page that it is on a list where he can vote for it.

That is why this list has been restricted to audio editions only.

Rasheed For anyone interested, there's another list here with only FREE Science Fiction audiobooks.

message 4: by Nick (new)

Nick Freeburg I'm not sure why "Cooked" is on this list. It's a fantastic book, but it's definitely not science fiction.


message 5: by Terrence (new)

Terrence I added the audiobook version of Armada, but the print version was up here too with 2 votes.
