Radio audiobook[edit]

This article title is somewhat awkward but it fits with the other articles: radio documentary, radio comedy, etc.. the term audiobook only recently became standard in the 1980s and 90s, yet books have been read on the radio since, well, the beginning. I thought audiobook however is now so well recognized that it made more sense to use it then "books on the radio" which itself is somewhat confusing (or "talking books on the radio"). Article titles tend to go with recognition over exact historic accuracy since they are just placeholders for finding the article's topic. If someone can find an industry standard name for this radio format that would be OK too. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 03:33, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
