I am responsible for purchasing spoken word for the Va. Beach
PL. While most of the major companies like Recorded Books and
Books on Tape have had the capacity to release their titles on
CD, they haven't done this yet. The primary reason, as I
understand it, is that the biggest market for audio books is
comuters. Most people still have cassette players in their
cars. When more people have CD players, then more CD's of
spoken word will be available.
Dove audio is the only company I am aware of that has produced
any of their titles on CD and it's very limited.
