I haven't written about my love of audiobooks in a while. In my non-blogging life, I get asked/tell people about audiobooks from time to time, and I keep forgetting to tell people about Playaways...unless me holding one is the reason the topic comes up.
I'm listening to this one now. I use them mostly for shopping, vacuuming, and hauling things in/out of the house...times when I need to be on the move. You can aso play them on regular speakers/boomboxes that have an audio Mp3 plug.
I put audiobooks on my regular Mp3 players too...I shop Audible and my library has free ones I can download...but this is a good alternative for those who haven't entered the digital age yet, would rather keep their Mp3 players dedicated to music, or find CD audiobooks inconvenient. Also, sometimes you just get different/newer book choices from your library with this media.
What about you? Anyone seen or used Playaways?
