FonoLibro, a Spanish language audio book company owned by Venevision International, recently announced it will make its products available online via Audible. This will allow FonoLibro customers to download the audio books onto their computers, audio and MP3 players and enabled cell phones.
They can also burn the audio books onto CDs. The versatile format allows “readers” access to books they might not have time for in the traditional printed format. Audible is the exclusive provider of audio books of iTunes, making those products available for download into the popular iPod players.
FonoLibro sells classics titles by Alejandro Dumas El Conde de Monte Cristo, El hombre de la mascara de hierro, and La dama de las Camelias. More recent titles incluye El Código Da Vinci, winner of the 2006 Audies Award as Best Spanish language audio book; and Ángeles y Demonios by Dan Brown.
Other titles include El Zahir by Pablo Coelho and John Grisham best sellers El Intermediario and El Rey de Los Pleitos. The company also offers a broad selection of self help titles. This month it will release Malinche by Laura Esquivel recorded by Lucia Méndez.
