Audio Books

I didn't learn to read until very late in the game.

How late?

Well, let's just say that I have improved significantly since college. And with this difficulty--not to mention the physical drain because my eyes "fight" each other--it's little wonder that I don't read a ton. It's too much work and takes too much time.

But I do love me some audio books. I can listen to them in the car during my commute each day, and then traffic isn't as annoying because I'm gainfully employed while waiting for people to get out of my way.

The problem is that audio books cost money. And not an insignificant amount either. Audible sounds awesome, but it costs almost as much as a print copy. Ugh.

Of course, my local library now offers the ability to "check out" audio books. But it doesn't sound like they're going to let me burn that onto CD without some work on my end... and since I would want to listen to these in my car, well, I kinda need it in CD format as my car doesn't have an audio in, and I don't have an .mp3 player.

So, yes, more research is needed. I've done a little reading recording, and it isn't easy to do. I want to get better at it because I really do love the audio format for books, but that's going to take some more time.
