Vancouver Public Library grows digital audiobook collection
Is it difficult for you to find the time to read books? Perhaps listening to that intriguing novel would be more convenient.
If you don't want to pay Apple or Amazon for them, the Vancouver Public Library has you covered. Today (October 18), during Canadian Library Month, the VPL announced it's almost doubled its collection of downloadable audiobooks.
The library's 500 new audiobooks include such authors and titles as:
- Alice Munro (Runaway)
- Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
- Sophie Kinsella (Shopaholic series)
- Sue Grafton (Kinsey Millhone series)
- Tony Hillerman (The Fly on the Wall)
- Lee Child (Jack Reacher series)
- Malcolm Lowry (Under the Volcano)
- William Gibson (Zero History)
- David Baldacci (King and Maxwell detective series)
All of the new audiobooks are available in MP3 format and, therefore, can be played on smartphones, media players, tablets, and other computers. Only Vancouver residents with library cards are permitted to download the books, though, due to licensing restrictions.
