Thing #22 oh, so MOLDI… 2008 December 2

i’m a fan of audio books! i mean, at heart, i’m a reader and i like to hold and read my books, but not always. i love to listen to audio books when i’m taking a road trip or working on a long project. i’m glad that we have MOLDI so that our customers are able to download audio books, but i wish they would get a bigger collection. i know that publishing rights and things like that probably interfere with them having popular movies and music (can’t make money off them), so i’ll just focus on the books.

to me, it’s a strange collection. many odd titles (A Date with Judy–Oogie Pringle and His High School Hot Licks wtf?), some variety (Revolution by Margaret Cho), and stuff for the masses (Kidz Bop 11). so when i say “strange,” i mean more like ecclectic, i guess. i have tried to download an ebook to a device and the hardest part for me was getting the Mobipocket eBook reader installed on the device. after that, it’s not so hard. now that it works with ipods, i’m sure i’ll try again and see if it really is compatible. 😉 as i mentioned before, i do prefer a real book to an eBook, but the audio books are excellent.
