I seem to have gone off reading books, my concentration wanders and I can't keep up with what I've read previously.

I have looked at buying cd audio books for use in the car/bath etc., but they are quite expensive for one book. Does anyone know of any place, apart from the library, where they send you a book to rent and then send it back? smile

The Gutenberg Project provides downloadable audio books for free. I download them to listen on long car journeys. They are read by volunteers, some better than others. There are over 53,000 titles.

I think The Gutenberg list now includes all the Librivox titles.

I have used both -- excellent.
