One Click Digital - Recorded Books

In 1979, Henry Trentman, desperately searching for an alternative to standard radio programming to fill his hours on the road, came up with the idea of listening to recordings of all the great books he couldn't find time to read. Since the offerings of audiobook companies at the time were sparse and of uneven quality, Henry decided to take matters into his own hands and record books for himself. From this decision has grown Recorded Books, the world's largest independent publisher and distributor of unabridged audiobooks on cassettes, CDs, and downloadable.
Recorded Books, LLC, is a division of Haights Cross Communications, a premier educational and professional publisher dedicated to creating the finest books, audio products, periodicals, software and online services, serving the following markets: K-12 supplemental education, public and school library publishing, audiobooks, and legal and medical publishing.
