Check out Some Popular Audio Books

Audio books are books that you can listen and also serve as a way of transferring knowledge. Audio books are available from different audio media sources, such as a cassette tape, MP3/WMA, CDs and more. Audio books go back to the year 1933 when an anthropologist named J.P. Harrington visited the remote areas in the States to record oral accounts of the history of Native Americans. For this, he made use of aluminum discs on a turntable powered by a car battery.

With the advancement in technology, downloadable formats and audio book CDs are now more popular than cassette tapes. Nowadays, you can find audio books in CD format, cassette tapes and downloadable or online audio books. Depending on what is suitable, audio books may be abridged or unabridged.
