The newspaper industry is shrinking.
Book publishers are hurting badly.
Some feel the next big thing is eBooks. (The Kindle is sold out until February.) But I don’t want a Kindle. It’s not much better than the book I have sitting unread on my bedside table.
I don’t want to “read”.
I like audible books.
Listening to books while I’m walking, biking, on the bus.
Sadly, there’s only one main distributor of audible books …
And — since they were bought by Amazon last March — I’m not sure how quickly Audible is going to bring the books I want to MP3. Their selection is too limited for me.
I’m happy to pay $12 for an audio copy of a book I want … but they won’t produce an audio version of most books. No wonder publishers are failing.
