    Thanks for the site, went there yesterday afternoon and spent the entire time downloading for my Ipod. Only problem is too many titles to choose from and since I downloaded for Itunes, had to click in the program to download the remaining chapters. This in turn seized up my PC a couple times but maybe I shouldn't get so greedy.............

    Again, thanks for the website as I'll be there again this afternoon looking for more titles. Great classics!!!!

    I love to listen to my audio books. I prefer mysteries but 'Call of the Wild' was fantastic. Even my DH is hooked now.

    Love to listen to books on CD. I have been doing it for quite a few years . I have always gotten my books from the libary or else I would be in the poor house. Once in a while like now,moved and no card yet, I will buy them from thrift stores. I go through at least 5-7 books a week. Especially now when all my sewing stuff is in storage. I will try out the link for sure if I can download to my computer and then burn onto a cd since my computer is now at the other side of the house from my bedroom where I will be sewing.

    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.
    Puck116: Yes, I have a Kindle Fire, too. You need to download the free app, Overdrive. And going digital means no more damaged CDs and such. I love it.

    This thread has been so helpful. Thanks to the op for starting it and to the others for building on that info. I usually have soft music playing in the background, but I think I'll try listening to a book.

    I am and audible.com junkie. Any money that doesn't get spent on quilting is used on audible books. I listen right from my iphone where ever I go, what ever I do. It gets spendy, but it is worth it to me.

    I start to listen as I sew but then find I forget to pay attention as I get too involved in sewing!
