Actually found "Text to Speech" Useful!

I played with "text to speech" when I first got my Kindle, and found it rotten enough to ignore. But today I tried something different.

I plugged it into my car stereo like I would my ipod. And maybe it was just the sound of driving, wind, etc... but it wasn't terrible. I mean, don't get me wrong, it wasn't as good as a real audiobook but since I'd never buy an audiobook of a book I already owned this works out rather well enough.

I've got an 8 hour drive to Albuquerque next week, and plan on listening to it most the way! (Hopefully it can be powered by my car USB adapter, if not I have a USB battery charger).
