Today I received a message from Aileen, PR for SimplyAudiobooks.com
who wanted to make sure that I mention them in this article. Of course, I didn't even look to see who else was in this market when I mentioned the Kitabe link. Evidently there are a number of small competitors in this niche including Jiggerbug, Booksfree, and AudioDiversions to name a few others that come up on the first page of a search. It would be interesting to see how their catalogs differ.
Audible.com is still a dominant force with a very large catalog, but there are apparently enough people who do not like the DRM of Audible and would prefer the actual disks. The Netflix model is a good one for audiobooks and I would love to see these companies succeed. Now who is going to make the Teaching Company
lectures available to rent?
