I download pod casts of books so I can listen to them when I walk. Yes. I'm a nerd. Stop laughing.

They cost the price of a regular MP3 download.

Go to half.com and buy them!!!! I have found so many books for my college classes on tape/cd for under $15. They have great deals and if you aren't particular you can find A LOT of good deals on there.

I'm in my car at least 3-4 hours a week so I get a lot of "reading" done. It's not really cheating is it? I don't think so!

I listen to books on CD all the time.
My brother normally buys them (he drives for a living) and i borrow them. I think they are exciteing and verry interesting.
OUr local library has a collection of books on tape that I somtimes borrow from. Youmight want to check out your library.

I agree on checking at your local library. I've only listen to one once will driving to a seminar in another state. It was pretty good!!
Our state public radio has "Chapter a Day" which is good to listen to also. The reader is very good!! www.wpr.org if you want to check it out.

actually our library here has an " audiobook" lending library online...
all I have to do is log in with my library card..and download it...
and there are some that will even let you burn them off...
I haven't had the energy to do that yet.

I have occasionally. I don't buy them though. I borrow them from the library. It's hard to get unabridged ones though.

One book that I would love to hear unabridged is "Lord of the Rings".

That's good to know. I'll have to remember that for my next road trip.

Does anyone know a good site to buy the unabridged "Lord of the Rings" audio books? My library doesn't have them and I know it's not something that I will want to borrow anyway. I'm so in love with those books that I want to have them in my collection and be able to listen to them whenever I want...which I know will be often!

I get them from my library and use iTunes to rip them to my iPod - it's free! I love the library. The normal 'audiobooks' download my library offers doesn't work with iPods.

I listen to books while commuting, riding my bike (I keep the volume low so I can hear around me) and when walking. The only thing I don't like is if I want to page back to clarify something it is impossible to do it like a book. Sometimes while driving I'll miss something in the story and I hate not being able to flip the page back and re-read. Oh well.

Yes, we like to listen to them if we are going on a long road trip. It really helps the time go by faster. We do not buy them though. We either get them from the library or download them.
