    I also download books from the library to my MP3 player (a Creative Zen). I like to listen to books by Debbie
    Macomber, JD Robb, Nora Roberts, Susan Whitting Albert, James Patterson, Agatha Christie, to name a few. Many you can also download to a cd.

    Lee Child/Douglas Preston are great books. They have written many good books together. Authors I have enjoyed among others are Harlan Coben, and Robert Kellerman. I am going to try some of the suggestions listed above. Thanks everyone.

    I love Jennifer Chiaverini books, however I didn't think that they came in CD format, I have always thought that the very people who want to "read" these books would want to be quilting during the story. I think the publishers really missed the boat on that one.

    Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse southern vampire books.

    Kim Harrison The Hollows books the combination of a witch, pixie, vampire elves and demons is hilarious. Especially Jenks the pixie.



    I second the Elizabeth Peters --Amelia Peabody Egyptian archeology books.

    Dana Stabenow—Kate Shugak Alaskan mysteries





    I find frequently find new audio books by looking up the narrator of a book in which I have enjoyed their presentation , and find other books they have read. I have found several new authors this way. Check out narrators:

    Johanna Parker

    Susan Ericksen

    Marguerite Gavin

    C.J. Critt

    George Guidall

    Dick Hill

    1000 White Women, People of the Book (Geraldine Brookes), actually anything by Geraldine Brooks, The Book Thief (Zusack?), Having Our Say, and as many others recommended, The Outlander Series.

    i love janet evanovich! she cracks me up, and there's always a good story. i've been watching a lot of police procedural type of series from england. very fun and i can hit pause if i need to concentrate on the sewing. right now it's the last detective. prior to that was midsomer murders, and agatha christie's marple, vera and a canadian series in victorian toronto. murdoch's (something). all really good! if you don't mind gutsy try luther. for something lighter, watch rosemary and thyme.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    Earlene Fowler, Marie Bostwick, Eudora Welty, Lee Smith, James Lee Burke, Jessamyn West, Jennifer Chiaverini, Heidi Thomas, Alex Berenson, I get them through my library. I very seldom watch TV except for PBS. I can sew and listen to books and love it.

    I only sew when I listen the books and I really love it. I love to listen to the Rizzoli & Isles books by Tess Gerritsen. I also liked two Simon Beckett hearing books ( chemistry of death and written in bone ) but I didnīt like fine lines by him. Also like the thrillers by Cody McFadyen and the novels by Nicholas Sparks are nice to listen to...not to forget Ken Follet.

    and thanks very much for your suggestions, Iīm about to run out of hearing books
