I like the podcasts of the NPR series "Selected Shorts." They usually do two short stories in an hour. Good literature, with hundreds of archived shows and a new one each week, and it's free!

I really like "Playing for Keeps" by Mur Laferty. You can find it (and a ton of other free audio books) over at :)

If you haven't read "The Help", I think that would be doable on a run. It has multiple characters and moves along... Also "Testimony" by Anita Shreve - that moved rather quickly...and has a great twist...
I also listened to "Half Broke Horses" - interesting, but not one of my favorites - but definitely long enough. Motivational - "How Full Is My Bucket"

Hope some of them work for you - happy reading, er, listening :)

I have some very long runs (3hours+) and like to listen to audio books on occasions (music get repetitive).

Any suggestions? I like things that are faster paced, don't involve a lot of thinking (ie statistics). They can be fiction or non.
