The Future of YA?

Pretty soon you might not even have to take out your earbuds to enjoy great YA lit--according to this NPR segment I heard today, the popularity of amateur audiobooks is exploding. Volunteers and fans, instead of professionals, are recording their voices for web downloads and podcasts. Some, like LibriVox, aim to record and make available books in the public domain, while PodioBooks provides serialized podcasts of original books--including Young Adult. LibriVox is looking for volunteers, if you'd rather participate than absorb.
