I am listening to "Orange Is The New Black" book on a playaway device I checked out of my local library yesterday. It is the size of a pack of cigarettes. Powered by a single AAA battery. I have to provide the headphones. The book comes preloaded on the playaway. The book was written by Piper Kerman. The book is narrated by Cassandra Campbell. Its the true story of a middle class woman who after graduating from college falls in with a drug ring. She moves money from the US to Belgium. Four years later she is turned in by her ex lover looking to cut a deal. Ten years after the crime she finally reports to a federal prison to begin her 15 month sentence. She takes full responsibility for her actions and how drugs did hurt others. She gives a interesting and humorous peek into life in a woman;'s prison. The Playaway is about $65 to purchase. The book has been adapted into a TV series by Netflix. So far only available as a download from Netflix.
