I got 2 audiobooks for free from Audible.com (i think they're still running that offer) and got The Da Vinci Code and War And Peace. It works great and the bookmark feature is cool :) But it really depends on who is reading aloud, because you have to listen to that voice for a long time, so it better be a comfortable voice :)

War And Peace is quite large (like the book). It's split in 11 files ranging from 76 mb to 117 mb each.

I've read half of the book and was planning on listening to the last half on audiobook. It's awesome!

Hehe, i don't have all of the files on at the same time. The small files are about 4 hours long and the big ones are 8 hours. So i swap them with only 2 on the iPod at a time :)

I like the occasional Audiobook.

Especially any by David Sedaris. His audiobooks are him actually reading his books, but you'll feel more like you're at a comedy club or something... They're really cool...

They have loads of audiobooks and shows and you can pay either per book or have a monthly fee and get two a month or so. They also have a trial running where you can get 2-3 books for free, just to check it out before you pay for anything (which is what i've done so far).

I bought my mini to listen to audiobooks. I'd been given a Shuffle for my birthday, but it doesn't hold bookmarks well. I took advantage of Audible's $100 off offer to get the mini. It's wonderful to be able to listen to books on long car trips or when I'm just doing housework or the like

The only audio book I have bought was Anthem by Ayn Rand, for school reading. It was more expensive than the actual book...:eek: ;) :eek: :p
