    Question

    What do they mean by “audiobook format”? I ordered this and now realize that it’s the only one I ordered that doesn’t say it’s a CD, it just says audiobook. I’m assuming it’s a cd, but does anyone know?

    • 1 out of 2 people found this helpful

      Yes, sorry, that’s a little confusing. The one that says “Audiobook” is a CD. The option that says MP3 is a downloadable (digital) product.
