Kindles, audiobooks and confusion

Hello again, I've been blundering around this site, trying to figure it all out. Thanks to desertgrandma for steering me in this (the right?) direction.

I'm in Georgia, a major reader, gardener, member of a community-supported agriculture group and Kindle 1 owner. I also love to listen to audiobooks but have had one problem after another. Yes, I'm technologically challenged. I bought an MP3 player so that I could download audiobooks from netLibrary and then found out about the requirements that were needed so that I could pick up again at the point where I left off reading. I did not buy the correct MP3.

Now I've gone to Audible.com to get books for my Kindle and find that my home computer is not new enough. I have Windows 98, Audible goes back to 2000. Does anyone know of another option for getting audiobooks on my Kindle?

Okay then. I'm off to the home computer (nasty old thing) to see if I can do better. Thanks bunches!

Does itunes work on your PC?

(Maybe it's time for a new PC... or at least operating system?)

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, a new operating system is in order and it is certainly on our wish list. Don't have an Ipod, so don't know if that works. Will try the link to older Audible. Wish me luck as I stumble through the possibilities.

Welcome to the community!

And for MP3 playing on windows 98 I would suggest WinAmp: http://www.winamp.com/player

Don't know if the current release does 98 but I do know I used it on windows 98.
