Audio Books

I love books. I enjoy reading them, listening to them (and Lord willing some day writing them!). Though I had audio books on CD before (and even MP3), my interest in audio books increased much more after iTunes started selling them in their own format (M4B). A big reason for this increased interest was because of their "book mark" feature that let's me pick up where I left off in my listening. It was frustrating to listen to hours or chapters of a book, only to have to "figure out" on the CD or MP3 where I left off before.

Another site that also sells Christian audio books in the M4B format is www.christianaudio.com. What's awesome about this site is that they give away a free audio book per month (and often it's an excellent book - past books offered were: Desiring God by John Piper, Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards). And most books are available in three download formats (MP3, M4B and WMA). It's definitely worth getting, especially since it's free; and listening to great books while driving or commuting or traveling is a great way to redeem that time. Enjoy and happy listening!
