    Question

    Will these evet be available on audible?

    • One person found this helpful

      There are no plans to put them on Audible at this time.

    Question

    Can I purchase “The Story of the World Series Audiobook Combo MP3” for someone else so the invoicing comes to me but the download goes to their e-mail?

  3. One person found this helpful

    Question

    are the MP3s single files or is each chapter its own file?

    • One person found this helpful

      Each chapter is its own file. When you purchase the set, each book is sent as four ZIP downloads. The ZIP downloads each contain several MP3s…each MP3 is a chapter or a half-chapter.

  4. Question

    Will these be available on Scribd sometime?

    • Probably not. We have no plans to put them on Scribd in the near future.

  5. Question

    I’ve compared the cost of buying each volume separately in the MP3 format, and the total for all four was $77.44. It appears the bundle for all of the volumes together(1-4) in the MP3 format is $108.90 – Am I missing something here? Is it really less expensive to buy the MP3 volumes separately?

    • Sorry, we had calculated one of the discounts incorrectly. We’ve changed it now so that this bundle is 77.44, and buying the four products separately is 84.70. Thanks for catching that!

  6. Question

    I love Story of the World history books and have recommend them countless times (and successfully convinced people to buy this curriculum) . I have all volumes on cd but they have gotten scratched over years of use ( aka mis-use by kids). In order to listen to them I ripped scratched discs and burned new ones. It was for personal use only and just so we could keep up with our school lessons. Its a huge pain and I would rather not have to do that. I wasn’t trying to violate any copyrights.

    I would buy these in a heart beat on audible, even though I already own them on disk (and in print!). Because:
    1. The android app allows me to set a time limit or to only play one chapter at a time.
    2. It is easy to stop and start it from a bluetooth speaker.
    3. It remembers the last place we listened to it.
    4. There is no mix up with it trying to shuffle tracks.
    5. When I need to get a new device I don’t have I have to re-buy, or spend seeming hours re-setting up mp3s on my new device.
    6. No more scratched or lost discs!

    QUESTIONS:
    1. What is the procedure to get the down loaded mp3 books to play on a device?
    2. Is there a recommend app (android) to play them?
    3. Is there one MP3 per book? Or is it dived by chapter? Or is it divided by some other method?

    Thanks for wonderful curriculum,
    Julie Goggans

    • Thanks for your suggestions, Julie! The Audible process is complicated, and we are working on that option. To answer your questions:
      1. The procedure goes like this: you purchase the product; you receive an email with links to ZIP folders containing all the MP3s (each book is divided into 4 folders, each folder containing about ten chapters worth of material); you download those ZIP folders to a computer and un-zip them; you put the MP3s into your usual music player like iTunes or Windows Media Player, and then they are available to play. From there, if you wish, you can transfer them to a phone, iPad, iPod, or whatever.
      2. No particular app is recommended over another. People play them on all kinds of apps.
      3. The books are divided up into lots of MP3s. One MP3 per chapter (or half-chapter, since many of the SOTW chapters are two-parters).
