Seslenen Kitap which in local dialect means ‘The Book That Speaks’ has become the first audio bookshop in Turkey. The audio books which the authorities claim have been priced quite reasonably can be bought outright or can be presented to others as a gift. On offer will be audio books from some of the most contemporary writers of the country which includes the likes of Canan Tan, Ayşe Kulin, Buket Uzuner, Can Dündar and so on. Twelve of the writers have also lent their voice to record at least one of their books which makes the first phase of the project. Those behind the endeavor have stated plans are already afoot to include more writers in future.
One can have more information from the company website www.seslenenkitap.com which also includes voice samples of the authors reading aloud their own writings.
