Re: Cost of commercial books to NLS

Hi Shirley,

Sounds like you have it covered!  Yes, good headphones are great for travelling!

Is the reader the same?  My headphones (Boz) work  on my iPhone for BARD and Audible.

When I speak to Audible rep, they always want if there is anything to return, then anything else?

They tell me that you would only want to keep it if I want to read it again.

There are few books I would want to read again-that’s just me!

Happy reading,

I do know that but since I paid for the audible book, I would like to listen to it on my phone with my earphones when traveling if I have trouble hearing without ear phones. You are not telling me anything I didn’t already know but thank you anyway.

I am not going to return it because I can put my earphones into the iPhone when going somewhere and listen to it that way. I am not going to Cary the DTBM machine around; too big and bulky for me.

It has to be less expensive for NLS to purchase the rights for them than it is to produce their own books. If that isn’t the case, then why would they be using them? But then, our government has begun to pay private companies to do a lot of things that it would be cheaper for government to do.

I wonder if anyone would know what NLS pays for the commercial books or are they covered
