Image of type of audio book called Play Away

Playaway is the newest format of audiobook. It’s the only format that combines the content and player into one unit. Playaway combines a very simple player with digital audiobook content, so virtually anyone – from kids to seniors – can use it to start listening immediately. The Playaway comes equipped with a universal headphone jack, so any compatible accessory – headphones, speakers, or FM transmitters – can be used to listen. Additionally, Playaway sets itself apart from other formats of audiobooks because it remembers where you left off – so there is no need to go back and find your spot in the story.

Playaway is about half the size of a deck of cards and holds content that ranges from six to 40 hours of play time.
