Playaway Audio Books – basically a self-contained auido version of books, not CD, not Cassette, sort of like a mini MP3 player that only plays one things. I haven’t actually used one yet, but they look very cool, I like the idea of audio books being more portable. They about the same price as unabridged versions and work with most FM transmittors and cassette adapters. It does require AAA batteries for power. Now I just need to convice my library to carry them!
Librivox – Free audio books. Just ones that are in the public domain. But still some great titles. They are also looking for volunteers to read, so if you feel like you have the best voice ever, or just want to do some public good, sign up! Also on the bottom right hand side of the page you can see links to more public audio projects, where you’ll find more titles.
Book Crossing – basically you join, get a identifying number to put in your book and thenk you leave it somewhere in public for someone else to find it and when they do they are supposed to go to the site and either add comments or just say they found it and pass it on. You can also see how many books have been “released” in your area.
