Ways to Listen

Physical Formats

  • CDs are still a popular physical format for audiobooks. Depending on the size of the story, audiobooks on CD can be separated into multiple discs. All of the CDs are in one case and are great to listen to in your car.
  • Playaways provide another way to listen to a physical audiobook. Because of their compact size, most Playaways can easily be put in your pocket for you to listen to on the go. All you would need is a battery and your earbuds and you’re set!
