    This is a great writer and the whole process has been very good.
    As a severely impaired person, Audio books are the only way to go and the MP3 format wurks very well also. I order the MP3 cd version to make life easier on me. You can download the books but that would chain me to the computer and limit my usage quite a bit. Bravo to Monitor audiobooks Collections and the personal help given to me. Well done.
