Is there any place that audio books are labeled more specifically like: cassette, CD, etc.?? I received an audio and it's cassette. Cost me 2 credits and I can't play it. :( Donna

I believe if you look under Book Type it will say either Audio Cassette or Audio CD.

Also when you search for audio books: only check the cd box.  Under advanced search or on the left it'll give you options to check: genre, format etc..,

If it isn't in the listing, I find Worldcat a fairly reliable source for listing if the book if CD or cassette, so you can check before putting a specific ISBN on your wish list.

Also, if you only want CDs, you might consider an RC on audio items.

Alway, always check!  I just did a quick search, (Advanced Search feature) and there are about 10,000 audio cassette books posted, and around 1000 audio CD books.
