Skips back

This is a good set of stories.But it skips back to the start even if you pause. So when you want to listen again you have to scan for the last story you were on(very annoying)

Love what I’ve heard

I love the just William stories. Only problem is this one will not play, it had played once and now won’t play just keeps closing itself. Any ideas ??

Great audiobook, but annoyingly it's all one track

These are brilliant stories, read deliciously by Martin Jarvis -- equally pleasurable for adults and children of all ages to listen to. My 11, 9 and 5 year old and I listened to them on a car trip this week and the journey passed very enjoyably for all of us.

It was, however, very annoying that each story isn't a separate track. The whole cd downloads as one huge track, so if you stop playing it takes ages to find your place again. And forget about listening to a favourite story over and over as kids like to do. It's a shame they haven't taken the time to make it more user friendly. I was lucky enough to have a tech-savvy 11 year old copilot to manage the iPod while I drove, as we kept having to stop the track to retune the FM transmitter; if I had been on my own with the little ones they wouldn't have been able to listen to it. iTunes should be able to mange things better than that.
