Playaways are digital recordings of books preloaded into a pocket-sized device. They run on AAA batteries and require ear phones to listen to the story. The unit allows the listener to reverse and fast forward, change the volume, and change the speed of the playback. It also automatically bookmarks the place where the story stopped, and will start at that spot the next time the unit is activated. MPL is beginning to add Playaway devices to its collection, starting with a number of titles available in the Childrens’ department.
For now, we are planning to buy only individual titles instead of titles in a series. We will start with a selection of 40 novels to test the popularity of the format.
