College textbooks are the 3rd most risen cost since the 1990’s, and we find it unfortunate that many times, once a student purchases a textbook, it is an additional cost to purchase an audiobook for that as well. We believe that our service provides exactly the same service at no cost at all to the student, and we also intend to service students seeking to improve their grades and those who wish to enrich their out-of-class learning experience
