ICYMI: Audiobooks are making a comeback.
Having shed their clunky cassette and disc casings and re-emerged in digital format, audiobooks have been making the news. In June (a.k.a. Audiobook Month), we saw a flurry of articles on the small but noticeable climb in audiobook sales. And since we're noted audiophiles—we have our own podcast—we were especially interested in this phenomenon.
Zalina Alvi hits the streets for the BookNet podcast to talk to some of the industry players involved and find out how the audiobook got pushed down the road to reinvention, what the availability of multiple formats does for sales and bundling, and how the Canadian-produced audiobook fits in to all of this.
