VIENNA, Va., April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AudiobooksNow has added Penguin Audio to its digital audiobook download and streaming service. Penguin adds a prestigious list of bestselling, award-winning authors and a backlist of unparalleled quality. The addition of Penguin Audio increases the AudiobooksNow catalog to over 45,000 titles.
"Penguin is the final major audiobook publisher to partner with AudiobooksNow and we could not be happier," said Bryan Stafford, President and COO of AudiobooksNow. "It's taken some time due to the merger of Penguin and Random House," said Stafford. Penguin's merger with Random House in 2013 has made Penguin Random House the largest and most powerful publisher in the business.
Penguin's roster of bestselling authors is a who's who of the industry, including authors such as Khaled Hosseini, Ken Follett, Clive Cussler, Liane Moriarty, Maya Banks, Patricia Briggs, Dick Francis, W. E. B. Griffin, John Sandford, Stuart Woods and Stephen King. Penguin recordings have earned two Grammy Awards, 12 Audie Awards and an Odyssey Honor Award.
AudiobooksNow currently offers the digital audiobook content of over 16 audiobook publishers. "Penguin's premium selection of bestselling titles rounds out our catalog of the top audiobooks on the market," Stafford said. Publishers like Penguin continue to increase their offerings in audiobook format as more and more people discover the convenience and flexibility of audiobooks. The popularity of portal devices like smartphones and tablets has had a direct impact on the growth of the audiobook industry. Whether you're at home, in the car, or at the gym, listening to audiobooks allows you to get more done while you read.
