Greetings and I hope you all don't mind if I chime in. I just thought I would join in on this thread as I am a inveterate audio book listener. I've been lurking but not posting much.

I commute about 35 minutes one way and use a Sanza Clip for my audio books from Audible.com. I've been a subscriber there since about 1999.

I'm currently listening to "The Elephant to Hollywood" narrated by Michael Caine. Wonderful. I'm not much on biographies, auto or otherwise, but this is very good. I just finished listening to "Reamde" by Neal Stephenson which was good, but not as good (I thought) as his previous works. The narration by Malcolm Hillgartner was superb though!! And just before that one was "Ready Player One" which I thought was very good.

I've discovered over the years that some books/stories translate very well to narration and others, not so much. IMO Stephen King's Dark Tower series was just such a marvelous epic. I read the first couple installments and didn't relish them as much as I did the narrated versions. It really was one of those series that I just hated to see end.

Thank you for putting up with my ramblings and such.

Howard

PS I also do e-books on my Velocity Cruz E-Reader and new this Christmas: a Kindle cheapo with the ads.
