I would be so very, very happy if this gets done as well. I listen to snippets of the audiobook of TSHOTP in my car all the time, it's leaving me craving more!

Now I actually might get this. Even though I was never too concerned about reading the original, nor do I listen to audiobooks.
But I sure love Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer.

Did your source tell you how it would be released? (I guess it would be Audible since they are the only ones who re-released the "Diane..." tape IIRC)

This is incredible news. I'm about 3/4 through the Secret Diary in my chronological reread/rewatch of the series. I think the Secret Diary is by far the best-written and most essential of the tie-in materials (which is not meant to take anything away from the Frost brothers' books, which are both fun in their ways). This is the only one of the books that captures the thing I love most about TP, the moody creepiness and primal Lynchian dreamworld terror, but the younger Lynch also grounds it in the sickening reality of an abuse victim's personal hell, making it even more disturbing.

I find the book is best "enjoyed" (it feels inappropriate to even use that word) in small doses and on the right day -- it's a difficult read, which is a credit to its author. Laura's personal mental hell is not an easy place to spend time, and as a male reading the diary of a young girl, even a fictional one, I periodically feel a little skeevy, and sometimes even culpable in her suffering when she bemoans the fact that even this sanctuary for her thoughts has been taken away by parties unknown reading her diary and depriving her of privacy. It will be interesting to see how the audiobook version, and having Laura willingly "read" the diary out loud, will contribute to the experience.

All of that being said, more Sheryl Lee as Laura is never a bad thing!

Very well put. It's definitely my favourite Twin Peaks tie-in, and in fact it's probably my favourite book of all time - it had that much of an impression on me as a young kid; it really made me fall in love with Laura. I've since read it countless times, but now I too can only take it in 'small doses on the right day.' It is such a bleak read, that I can't afford to read it on a bad day as I know I'll regret it later, but as you say this is in fact to Jen Lynch's credit.

Considering the explicit content, Sheryl Lee must have had to have left any prudeness she had at the door upon entering the recording studio, and just go for it!
I wonder if Audible managed to obtain rights to some of the soundtrack? I imagine not, but how cool would it be to have some of the soundtrack as an audio backdrop to Laura's words?!
I hope there will be a physical (CD) release too.

I would expect if they don't add the soundtrack a fan edit will eventually pop up.

It has been a while since I read The Secret Diary Of Laura Palmer but I recall some things not lining up (at all) with FWWM. Do you think they might correct that? Would you be into them correcting any continuity errors?

I doubt anything will be changed.
