    sparky's mom.......I download from the Library ALL the time. When I first started doing it, I was walked through the process by the Library. Ask yours if they won't help. It really is easy and once it's set up, it's forever.....

    I download books here through the Fingerlakes Library System. It's all free and I never have to leave home. I love it. Great selections too!

    I rent audio books from my library on line. Download them to my IPod, and listen while I am sewing

    I listen to audio books all the time, can't even go to sleep without them (on very, very low.) Sewing, cleaning, gardening - just attach a very long extension cord and clean room by room, and before you know it the cleaning is done. We hardly even watch t.v. any more

    Thanks for the link. You can also download free audiobooks at librivox.com. I've listened some to books on my Kindle, but a good narrator makes so much difference in my enjoyment.

    I have a membership to audible.com and listen to nearly 100 books a year. I enjoy listening so much that I'm thinking of cutting my Directv package back to the bare minimum since watching TV has started to bore me. I listen just about all the time and find myself avoiding tasks like vacuuming and mowing when I can't listen.

    I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas from my daughter. I didn't know it could read to me. I thought only I could read on it.
    Does the Fire do this also? I would love to be able to listen while I quilt.

    You know, this is a great idea in theory and I'm a big supporter of our local library but I have checked out audio books before and quite often they are so badly damaged that they can't be played. I've reported the damage to the staff and the usual reaction is to barely acknowledge the information and then just put the damaged items back in service. The problem may just be a local one, but I'd be curious to see if anyone else has had similar experiences.
