Cybel, who compiled the first fannish audiobooks of podfic in July 2007, has been credited with coining the term. Cybel's first LiveJournal post regarding podfic audiobooks was on 11 July 2007. The first use of the word podbook in the podslash comm was on 29 August 2007. Cybel quickly became a prolific podbooker and had compiled over 1,700 podbooks by March 2013 for various podficcers who posted to Amplificathon. With many podbooks, she included original cover art (see Cybel for examples), thus inciting the spread of podfic cover art along with podbooks.
