#22 and#23 E-books and audio books
It was great to browse for books on the various sites. I prefer the paper book to enjoy the pleasures of curling up with a book. Nevertheless I had fun looking at various books and may introduce it to students who would like to access books this way. Audio books are a great treat though for use in the car over long trips or during long periods of waiting (ie doctor's waiting room and such). I have used them in the classroom very effectively in the old tape recorder days and can certainly see the value in updating the means of delivery by using internet sources.
