What about MP3 downloads from your website? Are you doing that?
I have not purchased any MP3 books on CD yet, and no one has asked
for them. I have tried to download an MP3 book from another public
library (yes, I have their library card!) and cannot do it.
Seems VERY complicated!!! I do have a few MP3 books on my
Palm Zire71, I downloaded them from the following websites:
The On-Line Books Page
Bartleby.com Great Books Online
Project Gutenberg

Findlay is looking at MP3 downloads, hope to do it next year.

Our library has yet to purchase any MP3 audiobooks but it is being
considered There is conflicting opinion about how many people, who use
audiobooks, actually have MP3 technology on their listening devices.
Could I get some feedback to pass onto the audiobook buyer?
