I belong to, and I own a Kindle HDX. This allows me to take advantage of Amazon's Whispersync, that moves between audible and e-book versions of the book you've purchased. Amazon discounts the Audible price, once you purchase the e-book version of a book. I'm really enjoying this feature.

What I'm listening to...Audible Books

I just started listening to audio books on during the past couple of months. I wasn't sure that audio books would be for me, but I find that I really enjoy listening to stories. Professional narration makes all of the difference. I do like some authors reading their work; I find I'm in love with Michael Ondaajte's voice. 

Here's my current line-up:


River Town by Peter Hessler


The Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright


Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin


The Cat's Cradle by Michael Ondaatje


Revelations by Elaine Pagels


I'm also trying out Amazon's whispersync on some of these books. It allows you to move back and forth seamlessly between audio and digital form. That comes in quite handy.
