According to the NY Times, audiobook downloads were up 38% in the first 8 months of the year, while e-print book sales were down. The article says that "binge listening appears to be on the rise." http://nyti.ms/1Oofgmg. I'm not sure whether LibriVox's books were counted in the 25,787 figure. Let's hope so.

"Binge Listening", huh?

How dare they treat the many fine vintages at Librivox as something to binge on, rather than imbibe! :wink:
