    I learned how to download free audiobooks from my library onto my laptop so I can listen to them while quilting! :D

    I am a VERY happy camper now! Now I don't have to worry if there is nothing good on TV to keep me company whilst I quilt...I just download a book (takes about 10 min. to download) and away I go! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    And no hassle driving to the library during their hours or remembering to return them on time, etc. They are automatically returned (and deleted from my computer) at the end of the 2 weeks. If I'm not done reading it, I can just check it out again!

    Cool. I'm going to check our library to see if they do that. Thanks for the idea.

    Learn something new every day. That will be nice especially in the winter.

    You can get the kindle for free from amazon for your computer and you can find free ebooks from amazon also I have about 15 Ohhh and it gets better if you are a phone techy you can download the kindle app for your cell and take the books with you.... so why do I need to buy a kindle?? not sure but for free is great!

    Kindle is a great option for reading. I do like the idea of an audio book though, it would allow a person to listen while doing something else.

    You are so lucky, I love audio books! I really enjoy listening to a mystery while sewing!
