Books On Tap, Now There's A Thought

This last week I went to the dentist for the first time in 13 years. I did this because Abby was insistent and while we're all a bit afraid of the dentist, I'm far more afraid of my wife. You know, in a good way. Love you, honey. Don't kill me.

Anywho.

The experience wasn't all that bad, but I'm going to have to go back twice next month to do something about the moderate peridontitis and six cavities that have accumulated in 13 years of moderate tooth-neglect (although, in my defense, one of those cavities is really just a missing filling), so I'm in for some marathon dentistry during which I will be numbed and sitting in a chair for two or three hours.

So I've been thinking about audiobooks. I'm looking at audible.com, which seems like a pretty decent deal. I assumed Amazon would sell downloads of audiobooks, but they don't seem to. Anybody out there use them? In the days of ipods they make a lot more sense than in the days of cassette decks.

Thoughts?

I do the audiobook thing all the time. It's the only thing that makes a workout tolerable. I download all of mine through iTunes.
