It's sometimes very convenient when your favourite books are classics, because they are not copyrighted! Which means that you can read them online for free, or download free audiobooks to listen to while you iron or knit, as I have been doing recently. Beats watching TV while you iron, hands down! :-)
Most of you will be familiar with good ol' Gutenberg.org, but did you know that there are hundreds of free audiobooks you can download from the Gutenberg website? Here's a complete list of the human-read audiobooks, and a list of the computer-read audiobooks available.
Another great website to look at is Librivox.org.
Happy listening. . .
Oh, and one last tip: I usually use Opera as my web browser. When I tried to open one of the Gutenberg audiobook files while I was on Opera, it didn't work. Then I had the brilliant of trying Internet Explorer instead. . . and it worked with no problems. So, if you're using something like Opera or Firefox and are having trouble trying to download the file, try copying and pasting the URL into Internet Explorer. Stupid, smug little Internet Explorer. I don't like it, but sometimes I'm forced to make use of it. My browser of last resort.
