The Audio Advantage
January 07, 2008
A co-worker of mine was talking to a gentleman on the phone the other day. Just chatting about who we are and what we do. He was inquiring about which titles we carry were available in audio/CD format.
Sure, books that are popular (in the top 20 or so) usually get an audio version made, but exactly how long they remain in this state of production is a bit of a mystery. One part of the quirks is that some publishers do not have the control over what other media the book may come out in. This means another company/publisher has rights to it. Another nuance is popularity. Either the book looses popularity or gains it later on...sort of like a 'too little-too late' scenario.
Here's what's available in audio in our recent top 25!:
Meatball Sundae - #1
It's Not About the Coffee - #5
The Speed of Trust - # 8
The Starbucks Experience - #13
Juggling Elephants - #15
Basic Black - #19
Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science - #20
What Got You Here Won't Get You There - #21
There you have it! Now, this little listing may change in time due to many factors. My advice is get these while stock lasts! And if you are on-line and want to see if a book is in audio, just type the title/ISBN of the book and there should be a listing. If you don't find it there, it may still be in audio - so, just give us a call and we can check up on it for!
