MP3 Audiobooks Now Available to Check Out
WHAT IS AN MP3 CD?
An MP3 CD is a disc that contains compressed audio files. Because the files are compressed, more audio can fit on an MP3 CD than on a standard compact disc. The average audiobook is usually recorded on about eight compact discs. This same audiobook may be contained within one MP3 CD. Generally, an audiobook of 10 compact discs can be stored on one MP3 CD.
WHERE CAN I PLAY AN MP3 CD?
MP3 CDs are played in the same way as standard CDs. In computers the CD/DVD drive is already set to accept MP3 CDs. Newer home and automobile CD/DVD players also have the hardware needed to read MP3 CDs. Since most new cars since 2006 are equipped with players that are MP3 compatible, that's about 20-25% of the cars currently on the road.
WHY WOULD I WANT MP3 CDS?
You will love having only one disc to handle, rather than 8, 9, or 10! There's no need to switch discs while driving. You will have a more enjoyable listening experience and a much safer trip.
