Music and audio books...  best sites
#1
Ok so I have bought my lad a Sansa Clip Zip for chrimbo and liked it so got myself one.

I know this is a little naughty but i'd like a reliable site to get music and audio books but have no idea what sites are reliable and yet cheap.

For audio books i use audible its owned by amazon, you pay a monthly fee and get credits. Found you can save alot on unabrigde books which can normal cost upwards of £20 and last for up to 20 hour'ish. they also keep acount of books you have brought and if lost can download again at no cost.

does your local library do audiobooks? most have a fairly good range of 'bestsellers' (so you might get stuck with Jeffrey Thieving Archer) which can help to liven up long journeys. Alternatively, send me a book you want read and I'll do the biz with voices too.
Keep it foolish...

I understand that some folks like to preview music and audio books from sites like this one before purchasing stuff.

I like listening to The Modern Scholar TMS collection. History of Venice and or Byzantium does it for me. However The Rise and Fall of Alexandria: Birthplace of the Modern Mind, by Justin Pollard was one of the best books I have listened to recently. What the Greeks knew, and the west forgot, really shocked me Smile

Atlas Shrugged, the novel by Ayn Rand (who could almost be writing about the EU) was also a good listen. Not fine prose, but an illuminating tale from someone who understood the consequences of increasing bureaucracy and state control.
