    These look pretty cool…
    Great for people who don’t have the time to read a book, like when they’re in the car.

    I would rather download the mp3 of some guy reading it on youtube. SO then i can keep it on my phone and computer.

    If you have a smart phone, that’s a very easy way to listen. If you don’t have such a device, these are very nice. Parents and teachers also like them because they contain only the book–no music, games, social media, etc. What books have you downloaded from youtube that you really liked?
