On the

I recently began subscribing to is a pretty cool site that features audiobook downloads that would typically be featured in stores like Borders or Barnes and Noble (but probably in book form of course). The idea of is that you can buy audiobook downloads and download them to your iPod or mp3 player. There are subscription plans that allow you to purchase these downloads for a pretty good price. If you’ve ever bought audiobooks on cd or tape, you know how expensive it can be to buy these things on an ongoing basis. For a fraction of that price, you can subscribe to and get audiobook downloads on to your iPod and be on your way. It’s a pretty cool setup and I’ve had no real problems with it. If you’re an information junkie or bookworm on-the-go, is definitely worth checking out. If you’re the occasional purchaser of audiobooks, I’m not so sure that the subscription cost would be worth it for you. But for those of us that consume information like food (and happen to commute as well), then may end up saving you quite a bit of change. One tip, give the download plenty of time since downloading an entire book takes a lot longer than downloading a song or short podcast.
