Digital Audio Books (Tenn-Share 6) (40)

July 28, 2008

Earlier this year, I went on a long road trip with my friend, Jill, and I thought I would bring along some audiobooks. I borrowed three on CD and two on cassette, and I ended up with two grocery bags full of audiobooks to keep up with! When I picked her up, said she brought ten audiobooks of her own because she could not choose. “No way. Where will we have room for ten audiobooks, Jill?” I asked, pointing to the grocery bags of CD and cassette boxes. Then, Jill held up her mp3 player, smaller than a deck of cards. Man, I knew I should have checked out this downloadable audiobook thing!

Top Ten Reasons To Use Digital Audio books

  1. No one has ever lost one under the seat of their car.

  5. Digital Bookmarks are hard to misplace.
  6. They take themselves back to the library.

    How do we report that an activity is complete? Sorry to be so thick-headed…

  2. Jenny Says:

    Sorry we didn’t make that clear. There will be a survey at the end of the whole deal where you report which activities you finish.
