I'm with #11 - get a library card.I'm a big fan of audio books while doing mindless boring repetitive tasks like commuting, mowing the lawn..and WoW Daily quests.And thanks to my local library it hasn't cost me a cent. Best of all, libaries usually stock the unabridged versions of audiobooks on tape, CD and more frequently online like #11 described.The selection isn't unlimited (in fact I am suspicious that there the book buyer for my library is a big fan of mystery books ), but it's cheap, convenient and can even open your mind to books you might not otherwise pick up. I've listened to everything from Gaiman's "American Gods", to Yann Martel's "Life of Pi," to Peter Heller's "Hell and High Water" about kayaking the remotest river of Tibet, to John Gordon Steele's "Thread Across the Ocean" about the challenge of running the first transaltantic telegraph cable and how it revolutionized world communications. Cool stuff - and just the thing while you're mindlessly killing your billionth Bash'ir Raider :)
