"GoodEReader has been closely watching the ongoing struggles that public and school libraries and their patrons are facing as several major publishers decide exactly where digital content fits into the world of lending.

But now, audiobooksare being pulled into the cross hairs.Penguin Group, which announced last year that any books published after November 14 would not be available for ebook lending from libraries—and initially had said those ebooks would not be available for Kindle, but has since backed down from that statement—has now decided to pull its audiobook downloads from library catalogs for books published on or after that same date."
