R.I.P. - the cassette

Thanks to GalleyCat for posting about Hachette Audio's wake for the dear departed cassette tape audiobook. Hachette recently retired the format after publishing James Patterson's Sail. Publicist Megan Fitzpatrick sent the photo above to GalleyCat - and I just had to pass it along. I'm sure there are many other librarians who had similar "mournful" events when they sent the good old card catalog to the great beyond.
