I have tried for years to listen to audio books and never been successful.But last week I tried again with a Robert B Parkernovel and I loved it. Now I've got books on my ipod and I'm listening to a long Harlen Cobennovel. My public library has over three thousand titles and I'm borrowing them and downloading onto my computer.
If free is important, you might try Libravox (reading quality varies).
If free is not important, I recommend Audible.com. They have great readers.
Thanks for the tips Mrs. Heisenberg, I'll check out the first one. I looked into audible.com but it seems pricey.
You might also want to check out the (very active) Audiobooks Group on LT. There are quite a few threads with good suggestions (and warnings) about books and readers.
Librivox.org is a nice site, audible.com does have wonderful readers, but as you said they are expensive if you are on a budget. I would recommend that if you do get some extra cash that you get a couple of titles from audible though.
If I couldn't download books to listen to on my laptop while I knit I'd never get any "reading" done. What a wonderful invention! I use Audible.com, paperbackswap.com and my local library, which is in a consortium with other central PA libraries and has a wonderful selection for free.
