Audio Bonanza!

Half shelf_SL300_Wow--it was terrific to hear that the Booktown Mysteries were going to continue on audio.  Yesterday Murder on the Half Shelf was released.  What I like best about this new contract is that they're not only selling them as MP3 downloads (did you know you can listen to them on your Kindle?), but also as CDs.

I have to admit, while I do have a couple of MP3 players, I've never downloaded a book to either of them. I still prefer to listen to a CD and maybe that's because I used to listen to a LOT of loud music with earphones, and now I want to protect my hearing as much as possible. (I rarely listen to my MP3 player with earbuds.  I have tiny speakers that sound surprisingly good.  Great for when you travel.)

I hope many libraries will buy the new edition and that a lot of people will get enjoyment out of the rest of the series. (Sadly, there are no plans to put the first five books on CD.)
It's available from:

Audible | Amazon | iTunes| and discounted from the publisher, Tantor Media

KillingType_LgNext Up:  Not The Killing Type.  It'll be released on April 14th. They did a nice job with the cover.
