Playaways - Listen to Books!

Playaways are small ready-to-go audiobooks that you can listen to anywhere. They are very small and light. They do not need an internet connection. 

You can set the listening speed to medium, 1x slower, 2x slower, 1x faster, or 2x faster. 

Some Playaways come with the book so you can listen and read at the same time.
