aka YA Literature
Saturday, January 17, 2009
I love audiobooks. My library buys audiobooks on Playaways. What I like about Playaways is that they are attractive to the students since they are similar to their iPods, many students don't even have CD players, and I don't have to keep track of the CDs. However, the batteries die quickly and frequently, and, most importantly, there is very little selection. I read all these reviews for new audiobooks and Playaway has hardly any. I'd like to get more audiobooks, but if I only buy Playaways, I have very little to choose from. I wish more YA books would get produced on Playaway, especially since I see that as one of the best ways of getting students into audiobooks. Actually, downloading it from iTunes is probably better, but then they have to pay for it.
