Thank you! I am partially sighted and usually get spoken books on memory sticks from the blind society (RNIB) but this is much quicker!

Grreat resource! Thank you for sharing. Which ones would you recommend? I like Agatha Christie, but I don't think it translates well into an audiobook.

oh, I bet she does, with the right reader! I've learned a good reader can really make a book.

Thanks for sharing.

Tube has so much available. I, too,listen to audio books while knitting and as a genealogist get double help as many genealogy sites, as well as knitting and crocheting are available. Sure there is much more but there is only so much time as I also use Serra and Libby though my library for audio books as well as I Book library on Macs. Isn’t technology wonderful? So great for us who remember sitting by the radio in 30’S listening to Terry and the Pirates and Little Orphan Annie.

Mysteries are some of the best audiobooks!

Back in 2009 - 2011, our son copied dozens of books onto DVDs to keep me entertained while I sat alone in our condo in Latakia, Syria. I discovered that books I had already read were completely different when read to me. There weren't any Agatha Christie (or I didn't get to them), but the James Bond 007 books were enjoyable. Mark Twain, Lemony Snicket, John Grisham ... all were well worth listening to, even those I'd already read in the past.
I haven't been back to visit my darling's extended family since February 28, 2011. So far as I know, the binder with those DVDs is still sitting in our condo, along with several WIPs I left for 'next time'. My sisters-in-law take turns dusting the place every few weeks - really just checking that no one's broken in.
