July a Bad Month for Audiobook Cassettes

cassette tape July a Bad Month for Audiobook CassettesTalking with Creative and Marketing Director Colleen Rockey at the Brilliance Audio booth (#1594), I learned that, come July, Brilliance, like Hachette Audio, will no longer be producing audiobooks on cassette. “We’d like to offer every available format,” she said, “but there’s just not enough interest.”

Are you a librarian still actively purchasing audiobooks on cassette for your collection, or a publisher still offering them? A penny for your thoughts on these developments.

    Cassettes had a nice, long, 40-year run. It’s time to move on. Frankly, IMO, anyone still actively adding audiobooks on cassette to their collections is doing a disservice to the majority of their patrons, given limited (even if generous) funds availability.
