Hi everybody! Nic here from the e-GO! Library.
This is the second time Woot has run this offer (as the first Sold Out half-way through the day) so I wanted to drop in to [A] say that I’ll be back around later to help answer any questions, but also to ** proactively answers the most common ones now so here goes…
> there is a link to a list of all the books included in the product description. Alternatively the list can also be found at:
> these are all UNabridged versions
> these are NOT from Librivox or otherwise free elsewhere. They were recorded in a studio by professional actors* in high quality sound. Most have British accents while a few are American.
*‘Professional’ actors, not ‘celebrities’, so you don’t have to worry about Samuel L. Jackson swearing at your kids
> Here is a sample:
> The AudioBooks are in the MP3 format so they can be played through any device capable of Mp3 playback (iPads, Android, Walkmans, computers, etc)
> As we encourage sharing these are not protected or restricted in any way. By all means, feel free share with friends and family. The more the merrier!
I have a little one myself. Gabrielle Rose just turned 18 months and is an early riser so I better get a little shut eye now. But please drop any other questions here and I’ll happily answer them in the (most likely very early morning.
Also if this helps, here are the discussions from Round 1:
Thanks in advance for your interest! Best,
You should probably check with your local library. Your tax dollars are most likely paying for thousands of downloadable audio books through Overdrive media or some other software.
You 're totally right. A lot of libraries offer a lot of great books (in general) for free. Where I live not so much, but for example my folks, who are 2-3 books/week avid readers get 90% of theirs from the library thereby saving a bundle.
The problem with many Audiobooks outside the libraries is that they’re expensive. But here you’re getting 125 for $25 bucks (20 cents/audibook). So if you compare that with some of the hurdles the library poses – for example only being able to keep the books 2-3 weeks, taking the time to go there (or browse online +download), possible wait periods, etc – I still think this is a terrific value. Clearly I’m biased but really believe that when taking into account library limitations and comparing it to this price, this could make sense for a lot of people.
Plus many of our customers use these to travel (when they can’t get to a library) or as gifts.
While a big supporter of the library system, I feel there’s room for both. Thanks for the comments!
No Wind in the Willows?
No Wind in the Willows - but a good suggestion for us to work on for future editions. Thanks!
I’m thinking of getting this FOR our library! Any issues with that Nic? Pretty sweet deal as Overdrive often has a waitlist for many titles in our system. I think our storytime and homeschool families will love it!
Awesome! No issues here. As long as the purpose is not commercial (resale, etc) we encourage sharing. Especially if it’ll help more children grow an appetite for literature!
Thanks for asking!
Any chance the other ones you guys offer will make an appearance anytime soon? I would love to make them Christmas gifts.
First off; thanks a lot for the kind words! Now there’s talks of a potential January showing but nothing’s written in stone yet. Granted that won’t help with the Christmas gifts regardless. Let me check into something tomorrow and get back you you then (off to hit the hay in a sec). That work? Thanks and talk soon!
Haven’t had much time to use the adult selection I got a few months back here,but a solid deal, especially for those with poor net connections or long waiting lists at local libraries. A lot of good stuff for the cost of a couple of pizzas.
I got one…for me!! I have always struggled with sleep and found that these kind of titles are the perfect thing to fall asleep to. They make me feel relaxed in the way you do when someone reads to you. The stories are interesting enough to focus on. But, since I’m familiar with most of them I don’t feel like I’m “missing” something if I fall asleep while it’s being read.
In fact, my husband used to read to me, and I’ll fall asleep (which was the goal), but the next night I’d ask him to re-read a section that I fell asleep during. Once he read the same section four nights in a row until he told me we were moving on - he was tired of reading the same thing. I don’t have that problem with recorded children’s classics. They never mind if I replay the same section over and over. Ha.
Great to hear from you again! You had very kind words for us then and again now; thanks so much! A couple of pies do sound tasty, but yea they don’t last long
I hope you’ll be able to find more time soon. I’ve been trying to listen to more before bed but then I fall asleep and have no idea where in the story i dozed off. If only my ipad could press pause when it hears me snoring.
Thanks again for the kind words and wishing you a very Merry Christmas Pastor John!
LOL i just replied to the previous post before reading this with “I’ve been trying to listen to more before bed but then I fall asleep and have no idea where in the story i dozed off. If only my ipad could press pause when it hears me snoring.” -even the Sherlock Holmes books (on the adult version) which are stories I love dearly and usually keep me “entertained” I’m still lights out in 5-15min max.
If only this trick worked on my toddler… hehehe
