U32 Library Media Specialist....and audio geek

What a difference a year makes!   There are many new devices that will play audio-books, or let you read them on a tablet. There is even a new iPad.  It used to be fairly simple, books came in one format, bound, on paper. Sometimes the covers were hard, sometimes soft. Maybe they were available in different print sizes, but that's pretty much it. Not anymore. Books are available in a wide variety of formats. They can be read, listened to and even watched. If this isn't enough, there are many ways to do each of these.
