I've since considered Audible from amazon but read negatives about it, now that my husband travels a lot for his job I'd love for him to have those audio books to listen to on the long drives.
Thank you linrose. I gave up on audio books because they were so time consuming to load on my ipod. I did really enjoy listening to them during my lunchtime walks at work. I belong to a digital library where I can borrow ebooks and audio books. I might try the audio books again. They say you can listen to them on your browser now. It's nice to be able to watch birds outside while listening to a book.

Once in a great while I find the audio books (Now on discs rather than on tapes) at the discount stores. I listen to them while in travel in the car. Distance passes quite quickly in doing so!

The library has a very good selection of which to rent If I haven't any fresh ones to listen to....Used book sales every now and then offer a few.

We do too. As you begin to contribute, we will be moving you on up our food chain as follows:

carbon 11-25 posts
unicellular fungi 26-50 posts
lungwort 51-100 posts
grub 101-250
salamander 251-500
heron 501-1000
fox 1001-2500
great horned owl 2501-5000
land steward 5001-10,000
earth steward 10,000+

Here are some links to familiarize you with the concept of a food chain:

http://cmore.soest.hawaii.edu/cruise...d_web_full.jpg
http://king.portlandschools.org/file...b/Foodwed.html

So please know that if you end up hanging out as grub for a while, this is all in the spirit of good clean fun and we want you to know that that no part of a food chain can function without the others. The unicellular fungi is equally as important as the raptor.
With several new members, I thought bumping this thread up to the top might be a good idea.

I've always enjoyed this.
