I must have been lucky, I think that I downloaded a few books from www.audiobooksforfree.com before they changed the free level from 32 Mbps to 16 Mbps. I got two children's books by E.Nesbit at 32 Mbps, and at that rate they are very listen-able.

Still, $3 or $4 for an audiobook isn't bad!

I'm tempted to buy their version (on CD-ROM) of the whole Sherlock Holmes canon - pretty good value for $15.
