New MP3 Books: From Language Learning to Biographies

Sep 7, 2008
In today's world, it is not that difficult to convince someone about the merits of purchasing mp3 audio books.

When you buy mp3 audio books, you get a number of things that just aren't available with the purchase of conventional audio books. This is because mp3 format audio books have a lot going for them. Take a look at some of the benefits available when you buy books on mp3.

1. MP3s offer greater usability than any other form of audio book.

The great thing about an MP3 file is that you do not even need an MP3 player to use it. If you have a home computer, you can download and access MP3s and enjoy the same benefits. This makes them easy to use and share with friends or relatives.

This means that you can listen to the audio books yourself, and then allow your friends to listen to them as well. If you were using a CD or a tape, your friends would need equipment of some kind to listen, and while it might seem equipment like that is standard, you would be surprised at how few people still own tape decks or CD players and even more surprised at how few people have portable versions.

MP3 books are much more usable than more conventional CD format books because they offer more choices for playing them.

2. MP3s offer consumers more reasonable prices than other formats.

When you buy a book or CD, you are paying for the cost to create, distribute, package, and ship the items. Because MP3 files are digital, there is no packaging or shipping, and virtually no overhead. This allows companies to offer their product at a much lower cost. All you have to do is purchase the MP3 file and download right from your computer: you skip a lot of the middlemen ? and the cost.

Because the format lends itself to inexpensive use, you can purchase two or three MP3 books online for the same price you would pay for only one in a bookstore. You can build your library quickly and relatively cheaply.

3. You get a convenience that is unmatched anywhere else in the audio book industry.

MP3s offer you the convenience of browsing and purchasing online, from the comfort of your own home.

There is no need to drive to the store, deal with traffic, other customers, or a store's current inventory listing. With a few clicks of your mouse, the best deal on mp3 books can be yours.

4. The selection is outstanding and unmatched by traditional bookstores.

Whether you are looking for childrens' mp3 audio books or any other mp3 audio books on any subject, you are guaranteed to have a better selection when you purchase them online.

Bookstores stock what is popular and what will sell. They have a limited amount of space and money, so they don't always have exactly what you want. With MP3s, you are browsing through a digital bookstore, which is easier and cheaper to maintain, meaning you have access to much more than a store could possibly hold.

If you have ever tried to order an obscure, hard-to-find title, you know that it can be a tedious process. Even online giants like Amazon can be cumbersome, and you still have to wait for the shipment to arrive. Going digital with MP3 purchases is the easiest and fastest way to get the books you want.

The choice is clear: quality, lower prices, better choices, and more convenience. MP3 audio books leave the competition behind.
