Book Buddy Announces Junior Library Guild Offering Select Titles on GoReader™

Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Book Buddy Digital Media President, Brett Hodus, announced today that Junior Library Guild is releasing the first of a series of titles using the GoReader™ audio device. The device is a simple audio player that is permanently loaded with the content. It is battery operated and requires no computers, downloads or synchronization. “The product, by design, is a single purpose audio player – there are no games or distractions.

The GoReader ™ is often deployed as Book Buddy Sets for Hear and Read instruction. It is also perfectly suited for libraries since the stand-alone preloaded audio player is checked-out by users in the same way as a book, in fact the cases are designed to be stored in the same way as books,” offered Hodus. “We’re very excited about the engagement with Junior Library Guild and the opportunity to produce its award winning selections. The first selection to be released is ‘Stealing Air’ by Trent Reedy,”
