An audiobook is a recording that is primarily of the spoken word as opposed to music. While it is often based on a recording of commercially available printed material, this is not always the case; nor is this required to fit the definition of an audiobook, which is why "audiobook" is one word rather than two. It was not intended to be descriptive of the word "book" but is rather a recorded spoken program in its own right and not necessarily an audio version of a book. Information found at:wikipedia.org-Audiobook .To find audio books watch: Juvenile Audiobook or Adult Audiobook Video.
Film is a term that encompasses individual motion pictures, the field of film as an art form, and the motion picture industry. Films are produced by recording images from the world with cameras, or by creating images using animation techniques or special effects. Information found at: wikipedia.org-Film. To find DVDs & VHs at the Roanoke Public Library watch: DVD/VHS Film Video.
 
Most classics are many years old, but the word is sometimes pressed into use to describe newer works. Many classic books are, because of their age, now out of copyright and in the public domain, and of these a large number are freely available on-line from sources such as Project Gutenberg, many university websites or commercial sites such as Literature Junction and The Literature Network.
