Mar 11, 2008


OverDrive, an eBook and digital audiobook distributor to retailers, libraries, and schools, announced that it is providing both inventory and the underlying technology for the new download audiobook service officially unveiled this month in Borders' new concept store located in Ann Arbor, Mich. More than 15,000 audiobook titles are currently available for downloading in the Digital Center located within the retailer's concept store as well as in its Novi superstore, and online. Customers can browse the audiobook catalog and download audiobooks to MP3 players at several kiosks in the concept store and Novi superstore. Each kiosk supplies headphones and instant access to audio excerpts from the entire digital audiobook catalog.
