    I love that movie and when I'm down it is the one I watch. It is such a feel good movie.

    I listen to books on tape too. Mostly mysteries, but sometimes I put in a cd, Il Devo or classical music.

    They are mindless but pass the time.
    I listen to audio books that I download onto my MP3 player from the library. I have about 30 of them on there. When I'm not listening to a book I'm reading one either a book or an ebook on my Nook. I just love a good story.

    I have a TV in my sewing room too but seldom watch it. I would rather listen to a story if I have anything on. That would be an audio book. Love lite mysteries and non fiction.

    Talk Radio, I am so addicted. My favorite is Mark Levin. But he comes on late in the afternoon. Second favorite is Rush Limbaugh, and 3rd favorite is Glenn Beck. They keep me up on what is going on in the world.

    I do like to watch TV when piecing. My favorite is the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. But HGTV will work in a pinch. :-)

    And I can't believe Dr. Laura is still on!! Our network dumped her the day after 9/11 happened and she hasn't been back since :D
    You all gave me some great ideas THANKS!! :D
    Yeah, Librivox is great and FREE!!!!!!!!
    I have a subscription to Audible but not sure if it's worth the fee every month. We'll see........ I did get some of my all time fav audiobooks so that's good.
    The Yankees supercede everything for me though when they play day games. I get them on my laptop and bring it up to my sewing room :thumbup:
    Can you download audio books from your library onto the computer or an MP3 player? That is what I do and it is free once you have the MP3 player and they aren't expensive anymore. I have always gotten a good price on ebay.

    I love him too and have read all of his books. He is such a character. PG Wodehouse is an excellent writer and so entertaining.

    I listen to audio books. Right now I am listening to "Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean Auel. There are 4 or 5 in the series. Each book has between 24 and 28 cds. I have read all the books twice and listend to them once. I am listening to them again because the final book is coming out March 2011. It has been MANY years since the last one was released.

    Thanks for the url Amandasgramma. Quilting this evening so I'll check out the www.radiolovers.com Otherwise I pretty much run some old time movies, or favorite DVDs, or talk radio, or books on tape - Mysteries, mostly. Sometimes just music. Any music from Blue Grass to Rock to Classical. Depends on my mood. If quilting with someone else, we chit-chat over a silent background.

    I love rock and roll -mostly 70's but since my taste in music is as varied as my taste in quilts, I find sometimes country or classical suits me. Can't stand talk radio - anywhere anytime - guess I don't like anyone competing with me talking! HA. Sometimes I sew without any sound on but the sound or my dog snoring or my cat meowing!

    I listen to the sounds of my machine purring along...sometimes I do plug in my ipod and listen to some Twila Paris, Rich Mullins and others. but the hum of the machine is music on most nights.
    Blessings,

    I just love current affairs , and what is
    happening in the world , so the radio
    never moves from the BBC , and they dont
    have advert either . Just love it. Makes
    me very scure in my little sewing world.

    Listen to my little daschund, Cookie, peacefully snoring on her own quilt in the sewing room with me. I rarely turn on the radio because I don't want to wake her! It's a very calming, peaceful sound!

    I listen to books on tape or CD from the library. I "reread" all of the Harry Potter books this way. I think the reader of the HP books did an excellent job! I've caught up on quite a few classics this way. I've noticed that when I have a really good book going, I spend a lot more time sewing.
    When I'm measuring or needing to think, I think I listen to my own voice.

    usually listen to local radio station to catch news that i never have time to read in paper - plus they play oldies and have radio contests that are interesting to try to win (won once! a free dinner at a local restaurant!) Sometimes listen to mindless sitcoms like Seinfeld, The Office, etc. Have seen them so many times don't have to really concentrate on them. Oh, and Mama Mia - have done that also when no one is home to hear my horrible singing!

    Books on cd are my favorite to listen to. Usually one I have already read or heard before so that I don't have to worry about missing the details.

    I like almost all music but I have to say I love to sew on Saturdays and listen to The Prairie Home Companion and to Car Talk. Those guys crack me up! Books on tape are also good and keeps me sewing longer, especially if it's a good mystery.

    I am with you great aunt jacqui, I like to have the T.V. on for noise more than programs but there are a few shows I like to watch. Antique Roadshow, Murder mysteries, How a crime was solved etc. but if there is nothing on I do like silence if you call living next the the highway silent.
