Audio Books Addiction

I have been totally hooked on audio books for years. I used to keep a list and ran across it the other day and it has over 300 of my favorites. I'm so sorry I didn't keep the list going. Everything was on tape in those days so I decided to go back and listen to some of my favorites again . I was surprised that a good many of them had been discarded due to wear and not replaced. Our libraries are not buying books on tapes anymore and many of the those books are not available on CD.

So it is renewed zeal I'm going over my list.. I just finished an excellent book on tape, "Haunted Ground" by Erin Hart. It is set in modern Ireland and it weaves a story about a bog discovery with a recent mystery...mixing in Irish history and archeology...

I not only get books on CDs but now I can download them directly from the library to my computer and then to my MP3 player... I have three little players and am loading them with books for my trip to the retreat.

When I read those thing you can do with your PC I am so surprised! I am far behind with all this tech stuff.
It looks great to me to listen to a good story when you have someting boring to do such as ironing :)
I have to see if I can learn to do this!

I also utilize the books on CD for listening to while I am traveling, trying to relax at night and not disturb DH (lol), etc. My favorite right now is anything by Janet Evanovich - all funny modern romance & slight mystery stuff - very light weight. I do have a pretty good library of books on tape (cassettes) if you would ever like to trade or borrow. Subjects are numerous.
