Today, I was shopping at a used book store. When I walked in the store I took a deep breath inhaling the scent of ink posted to paper. It was the best smell ever. Yes, I am a book lover. As I walked past rows and rows of books from floor to ceiling, I didn’t want to have to leave….ever. But I did, and I wound up going to another store and then, yet, another.
And hidden in the midst of several stores and thousands of books was the one that caught my eye. It was published in the early 1900’s and what surprised me the most about this find that I could not afford, was the record that was situated in between its pages.
Could you say this was the first attempt at adding audio to books? It wasn’t an audio of the book, but an addition. Speeches. Was the publishing company looking forward to the time when books would be available in audio or was this a fluke? I don’t know but I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the book and record that I couldn’t afford. J
Moving on into the present day, are you a reader? Do you listen to audio books? Are you an author? Have you considered putting your books to audio?
I have recently journeyed down the path of audio with my books. Thanks to the electronic industry and the world wide web, I was able to put six of my books on audio by the end on September 2014.
Encima Del Arco Iris is for children. (coming soon)
La Princesa y el Dragon is for children.(coming soon)
All will be available both on Audible and ITunes by the end of September 2014. Their Journey Begins, Transcendence, On Top of the Rainbow, and Princess Alexia and the Dragon is available now.
