    Can someone point me to a blog/website that gives ideas about how to actually record an audiobook? I am new to voice acting with my own studio. I use Pro Tools LE. When I read a book, is the entire book stored in one session? Do I create one track per page, so it’s easier to find errors to go back and redo? Then copy/paste the tracks together. Or do you do one track per chapter? I’d love advice on how audiobook readers handle this. thanks.
