Downloading Audio Books Gains in Popularity

From NPR:

"The increasing popularity of downloadable audio books is already shaking up the publishing world. Ana Maria Allessi, publisher of HarperMedia, says that in the past, all books came out first in hardcover — but that's changing.

'We're pursuing a number of authors where we are going to work with them on what we are calling 'born digital' products, where we will say it will start its life as a digital download audio book, and may then go to e-book and with that success, we may then go to paper,' Allessi said.

As audio-book sales increase, so do the number of digital books loaned by public libraries."
