During a recent meeting with our Collection Management Director, I was pleased to hear that our library is looking into expanding the collection with more downloadable options inlcuding pre-loaded single-title audio books.
Although I had an image in my mind of what these might look like, it wasn't until I came across a posting about Playaway books on Library Stuff, that I actually saw a picture of one. Take a look at the PlayAway site -- I have feeling that Linda's right - this new option is going to fly off the shelves, especially with those users who love audio books, but are not savvy enough to download and transfer a mp3 or wma file to a portable device.
What do you think about this audiobook option?
