Samuel L. Jackson is part of an all-star cast of actors who have signed on with Audible.com, the 17-year-old Amazon-owned company, to bring classic novels to life for a fast-growing population of audiobook fans worldwide. Other participants include Dustin Hoffman performing “Being There;” Susan Sarandon performing “The Member of the Wedding;” Kate Winslet performing “Therese Raquin;” Nicole Kidman performing “To the Lighthouse;” and many more. Jackson, Sarandon and Winslet’s efforts are part of the initial release, along with Anne Hathaway’s performance of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”
The push behind it was bolstered by healthy growth in the audiobook market, a $1-billion industry, according to Audio Publishers Assn., the trade group that tracks sales and advocates for audiobook publishers.
