#22 Audiobooks (or "The end is in sight ")

[There is no podcast for this exercise]

Downloadable eAudiobooks are becoming more popular in library situations.
Subscription services such as Netlibrary and Overdrive enable libraries to purchase audio files, so library members can download them onto their mp3 players.
The beauty of this is that after the loan period expires, the audio file is deleted from the mp3player.

For this discovery exercise, you merely need to familiarize yourself a bit with the structure of the World EBook fair site (a free Downloadable eAudiobooks site)

Take a look around and locate a few titles of interest.
