We have a large selection of titles to choose from, including assigned novels from your English and Humanities classes, with many more non-curricular titles for recreational “listening.” Many Playaways come in a kit combining the audiobook with a print copy of the novel, allowing you to listen and read at the same time, if that is something that helps you. This can be especially useful for school assigned texts.

For this year’s celebration, the coalition of organizations that sponsors Banned Books Week will emphasize the importance of the First Amendment, which guarantees our inherent right to read.
