What's new with audiobooks

In June we celebrate Audiobook Month

You can borrow audiobooks on CD, as a playaway or as a digital download. Playaway "is the name of a solid-state prerecorded audio player introduced in 2005 by Findaway World, LLC, based in Solon, Ohio. About the size of a deck of playing cards and weighing 2 ounces, it can store up to 80 hours of audio. As of March 2010, the audiobooks are all produced in high definition audio".
