New eAudio Books

Written on: June 18th, 2010 by: in Blog Posts

Every month, the Delaware Library Catalog receives new titles from our partnership with NetLibrary. They provide a wide range of unabridged digital audiobooks which can be downloaded directly from the library catalog in a variety of formats. The titles below are some of the most recent MP3-format titles from our subscription, which can be downloaded direct to a wide range of portable audio devices or copied to iTunes:

  • James Lee Burke’s A Morning for Flamingos, and early Robicheaux novel, is now available on MP3.
  • Dan Waddell’s Blood Detective, featuring “a wily and likable amateur sleuth…reads like it was written by a seasoned pro, sharply plotted and populated by three-dimensional people. The story is intricate, and readers will appreciate the care Waddell takes to incorporate Barnes’ profession into the mystery. The genealogist-sleuth is a relatively unmined vein in mystery fiction.”
  • The Secret of Shelter Island, by Alexander Green, shows how to live a rich life in difficult economic times
  • Former MedTronic CEO Bill George’s 7 Lessons on Leading in Crisis offers “in-the-trenches experience and lessons from leaders (representing an array of companies) who have weathered tough economic storms.”

Click on the link above to connect to the listing in the library catalog, and then click on the chain (weblink) icon to download the title from NetLibrary. This previous posting includes instructions on using the service.

You can see the full list of recent releases here. Titles in red are MP3/iPod compliant- and this is the first time that this format has outnumbered the more restrictive WMA format in our monthly acquisition from NetLibrary- a great trend that we hope continues:
