Traditional book formats don’t work for everyone. Because of preference, time, vision or reading problems some book lovers prefer to listen to books in addition to or in place of reading text. In the kitchen, at the gym, or in your car you can escape to a new world with an audiobook.
With a variety of formats, there is something for everyone. Books on cd, Playaway device, or downloadable audio go with you wherever you want and whatever you do. From Children’s books to James Patterson; Debbie Macomber to Nonfiction: the possibilities are endless.
