Find Audio Books free, buy or rent
This is a rapidly changing category -you can rent audio books, buy them outright, and even borrow from your local library or borrow them from your friends. The most useful format (other than AAC for iPod) is MP3. This is the compression most often used on your audio CDs. These can easily be converted to iPod audio book format using iTunes. We'll be covering that topic soon, so check back or bookmark this page. Editors
