An article recently appeared in Financial Times:  "Audiobook stages a comeback in apps era,"  What stunned me was not the fact that the convenience of digital audiobooks is causing a tidal wave of new users.  Everybody knows that, as they say.  But to have the number of audiobooks released double in 2013 to 36,000 seems incredible.

It's a great time to have a Bloomfield Township Public Library card, which gives you access to the best in audiobook downloads, without charge, every day of the year.
