Truckers Listen to Audiobooks!


An article from the Washington Post tells of a nationwide network of audiobooks, and a teacher that records them. The company that is producing the audiobooks, Books In Motion has more than 1,3000 titles in over 300 truckstops.

A nationwide network lets truckers rent tapes or CDs in one state and return them in another. Taylor, a former radio announcer and faculty adviser for Valdosta State\'s student radio station, said some truckers rent 60 to 70 titles a week.

The article also states that audiobooks are a $2 billion plus business with over 166 companies. Here\'s the full story.

I was unable to locate pricing for the rentals at the Books In Motion website.
