The audiobook industry continues to see tremendous growth. For the second year in a row, the Audio Publishers Association’s Sales Survey reported more than 20% growth in audiobook units and dollars.
As the long transition to digital continues so does the popularity of CDs in many Public Libraries, where circulation remains steady. Public Libraries with their vibrant collections remain the #1 source for CDs.
This Diamond Discount sale is an economical solution to help librarians keep up with the current demand for CDs and here’s why:
- With titles from adult authors like Janet Evanovich, Gillian Flynn, John Grisham, Debbie Macomber, and kid favorites like Dr. Seuss, Christopher Paul Curtis, James Dashner, and Kate DiCamillo, now is the time to stock your shelves with popular titles and series installations you may have missed due to budgetary constraints.
- With titles as low as $5.00, it’s a great time to weed your collection and add fresh titles that will keep patrons coming back for more.
- The recent Audio Publishers Association Consumer Survey—nearly half of all audiobook listeners report listening in their car most frequently. In fact, many audiobook fans have their first audiobook experience in cars.
- So, why are all of these people listening in cars? The average age of the car on the American road is at an all-time high of 11.4 years. Think back to late 2004, when there was no download technology in cars, and keep in mind that 11 years is the average—so there are many old cars knocking around out there with CD players waiting to be filled.
- But it’s not just about older cars—even new cars rely on the CD. 20-25 of the top selling cars in the US include a CD player in their base model. And, last year alone those 20 models with standard-issue CD players sold 6 million cars in the US.
