books on tape


Posted by Billie Lowe , Nov 04,2001,13:59   Archive
Hi, At the conference a year ago, in Kentucky, someone talked about books on tape. I don't remember if you bought them or rented or what, but I thought it was a company in California. Our library here dosen't seem to have a big selection. Does someone know?

Thanks

Hi Billie,

I believe you can contact the Library of Congress. They have a great selection of books on tape. Every state should have some kind of organization that you can go through or get help from. Or try contacting them yourself. You could also try the National Institute for the Blind and they may be able to give you more info. Or even simpler, go to your local library and ask them. I used to live in California and I got books on tape, and they lent me the special tape player to listen to them. Good luck.

This is part of the Library of Congress. Click on the link and it should give you more info.

You could also check out auduble.com. If you get a one-year subscription, for $12.95 per month, you can download two books per month and get a free player (these are MP3 files rather than tapes). Large selection including many current bestsellers. Related link: Audible.com

Here is another link I got from Phil B. This is even better than my previous link.
