New Audio Book Rental Technology Introduced for Literacy Day
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 8, 2005--Jiggerbug, an online audio book rental service, today announced a new way to deliver their collection of best-selling audio book titles to subscribers - digitally. Similar to the Netflix model, current Jiggerbug subscribers enjoy quick and simple mail service delivery of their favorite book titles on either CD-ROM or cassette tape.
With the new Instant Download service, Jiggerbug now allows subscribers to have the option to instantly download their favorite titles in an easy-to-use, take-it-with-you digital format. The Instant Download digital delivery is ideal for commuters, frequent gym goers or anyone who wants to create more time in their day by multitasking with an entertaining best-seller, self-help title or any of the thousands of book options available. Pricing for Jiggerbug's Instant Download service starts at $19.95 per month, and first-time users can try the service for free for two weeks. Jiggerbug.com is the only rental service for audio books that allows subscribers to rent the downloads.
Growing time demands make it difficult for many to enjoy the latest "must-read" titles. To bridge the gap between time and desire, Jiggerbug's audio books allow people to listen to their favorite book or subject during times that may otherwise be wasted (lengthy car commutes, gym time, etc.). By freeing up the hands, Jiggerbug is freeing up time for busy executives, multitasking moms and housewives or anyone who wants to make more efficient use of their day. Audio books (available on tape, CD or Instant Download) are also a solution for the elderly, beginning readers, or anyone with sight restrictions. With the new Digital Download service option, ordering is as easy as: 1) choose a title and checkout, 2) instantly download the title for immediate playback and 3) at the end of the loan, the title is automatically returned to the collection.
