A couple months ago I listened to the DaVinci Code on CD while driving to/from work and to/from bike rides. I don't usually listen to music while riding, but if I could download some interesting books on tape onto an iPod it would be better than having to listen to myself huffing and puffing the whole time I'm riding. Are Books On Tape available in downloadable formats? If so, any suggestions on titles to listen to?

Yep, you can download them straigth from Itunes, but they are pretty darn expensive. DiVinci Code was about 15 bucks more than the CD I got at Price Club.

i'm not at all in favour of filling my ears whilst riding...too dangerous for my liking.
But if you must..load your Cd onto your computer then upload it to your ipod..too easy

www.booksontape.com has some of their selections on MP3 CD. I've taken to just ripping everything to MP3 and burning it to a single CD. Or, more recently, using Audible and playing them on my iPAQ.

If you're interested in some Robert Ludlum, I might be able to sell you an MP3 book or two. I've got some unabridged King and Prey by Crichton, but not on MP3. Drop me an email if you're interested.

These are books in a text file, not an audio file.
