I love audio books!

Taking in another audiobook from the local library. Sharpe's Havoc was great, so I decided to check out another that takes place in 1824 and involves, again, the British army. The Sabre's Edge by Allan Mallinson is set in Burma, and has started off to be a good listen. Makes my daily drive to work go by alot easier.

I'll have to see if the local library has any audio books on the Civil War...

I agree wholeheartedly. I've been listening to Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Matruin series and Patrick Tull, the narrator, does an excellent job.

Alton -

That series is on the list --- I almost checked out "Desolation Island". I like O'Brian's stories, and I also have a soft spot for that general period.

BBY -

You should be able to find a lot of good CW works via audiobook. You'll find a ton of audio books about Abe Lincoln.

Audible.com even has digital downloads that you can copy over to your iPod. Shelby Foote's Civil War trilogy is there too.

I love audiobooks, especially unabridged audiobooks read by the author. Since I haven't been innundated with offers to adapt my stories to audio, I've taken it upon myself to record my own work. I've just posted the my first effort, a reading of my story "To Market, To Market, the Branding of Billy Bailey," which ran in last September's Interzone. It's an 11.4 MB MP3, but if you've got a DSL or cablemodem connection, give it a try!
Here are famous books by Darwin, Newton and Shakespeare in audio format. Also discover the stories behind some well-known works, such as Marie Stopes’ Married Love, the original radical feminist Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Check out ”Audio Books”
