The Fastest Growing Format in Publishing: Audiobooks - The Wall Street Journal

Panzer's trip into the Catosphere today took him to The Wall Street Journal site. There our adventuresome kitty reporter found a post about audiobooks.

According to the post by Jennifer Maloney, audiobook sales are skyrocketing in the United States and Canada. Combined their sales of audiobooks are up 21 percent in 2015 over 2014. Smartphone users are a big driver behind the sales, especially with the availability of cars with built-in Smartphone connection capabilities. The availability of audiobooks through subscription services like Scribd also help propel sales as well. The post includes a lot of information about audiobooks with quotes, statistics and numbers.

I can do that. I have a good voice.
Panzer says, "Hmmm ... Maybe I need to do an audiobook of Cat Wisdom for Humans."

Note: This is a h-u-m-u-n-g-o-u-s post. Bring two thermoses of tea, two dozen muffins and a sleeping bag (for a nap in the middle).
