eRead and eListen
I just returned from vacation – visiting our daughter and her family. We decided to do a road trip to Boise (1500 miles one-way) instead of flying this time. A large part of the trip was through areas that either had no reception, poor reception or only had radio stations in a genre neither of us enjoyed.
Luckily, we both enjoy similar taste in books. I downloaded a couple of audio books onto an MP3 player which I hooked to the auxiliary jack in my car and we were able to both listen to the book over the speakers built into the car. It really made the time go fast.
There are a number of web sites that sell books for the listening but, I have a hard time spending money on a book that can’t be passed on to others to enjoy, so I found several free options. Local libraries are becoming more tech savvy, offering both electronic and audible books to download onto eReaders or MP3 players. The books can be read or listened to for a period of time (usually about 2 weeks) before they “self-destruct” – very “James Bond-ish”.
If you visit www.openculture.com/freeaudiobooks, you will find more than 525 Free Audio Books, 440 Free eBooks as well as free online courses, movies and more. Enjoy! ~Brenda
