    Thanks for sharing this. I will check it out, as I often listen to books on CD (from the library) while I am doing graphic art work on the computer.

Another great way to listen to a book while doing anything:
My library has Playaways. Each is about the size of an iPod and holds one book. The borrower has to supply one's own earphones & an AAA battery. I can carry one anywhere in my pocket. I can "read" while on an elliptical machine at the Y, on a walk in the park, or while gardening, shoveling snow, grocery shopping, cooking, or doing laundry. (Playaway is just one brand name of these. I believe there are several similar products.) Ask your librarian if they are available.

I also listen to books on tape & CDs, but the listening devices for those are less portable, so I usually listen when I am going to be in one spot for a while, or in the car ---depending on if I'm in our newer car (CD) or older one (tape.)

    OR ... check out "books on tape" section at the library.
