Someone, I believe it was on here was wondering why we should work on books
already recorded on cassette by NLS.
I have a story to tell and how to illustrate a good advantage for doing just
I borrowed from my local cooperating branch a copy of
Rilla of Ingleside.
It arrived her the other day and I popped it into the player, have been wanteding to read this and had Just finished Rainbow valley.
Well... the tape was old, and warped, and no matter all the "usual" tricks,
I couldn't get the tape to play properly.
So... after being disgusted by it, putting it back into its little green box, slapping the string on the latch and thinking I would call them today about it, I had a brainstorm.
I got online, found Rilla of Ingleside in the Bookshare collection and grabbed it, popped it into the book courier and all was well again.
I do like listening to human readers though some of them are quite grating on me, but I still like the flexibility of choosing what format works best for me.
This isn't the first time this has happened, but... it was the most recent.
