Does anyone one know if I can get audio books to download so I can listen to it on my computer or ipod instead of buying the cd?

Check out your public library as well to see if they have a download service such as Overdrive Media. Many libraries offer this service now-sometimes they don't have the newest titles and you might have to wait, but it's free!

The iTunes site has hundreds (perhaps thousands) of audio books that you can purchase and download directly into your iTunes library, then sync into your iPhone. Prices are quite reasonable. Go to your iTunes, go to iTunes Store, click on the Audio Books option on the menu bar at top. Fast, easy, etc.

Hi. I use Audible and iTunes, but I also use InternetArchive. com. Lots of the great works of literature are in the public domain, such as books by E.M. Forster and many of the Serlock Holmes stories.

I too use Audible, Overdrive (for library downloads), and second the recommendation of public domain stuff for free at InternetArchive. From there you can find links to some other services I have used, Project Gutenberg and Librivox. Watch out for the ones generated by computer voice on the public domain literature sites, those are terrible in my opinion, I couldn't get used to them and only go for human read audio.

I use Audible then download the Enhanced Audio version into Itunes for burning into audio CD's which get played on my home & truck stereo's. The other source is my local city library. Either checking out an audiobook on CD's or downloading it through my library card through either Overdtive or Netlibrary. Some of these can be burned to audio CD's & some can't plus I've found some Netlibrary downloads which are in mp3 format & which I can keep on my hard drive as they don't expire.

I love the fact that the San Francisco public library has Overdrive Media for downloading; it's not as stocked as I would like and I do have to wait but I love it! What more could you ask for? --- and it's free.

I use but I also utilize available free downloads. Many of the classics are public domaine and free for downloading on many sites, just google "free audio book downloads". My other free source for more current books is my public library. You should check yours out, my local library has around 500 downloadable titles to choose from on their website.

try for audiobooks. They use the overdrive software for downloading.

I want to download books, but not subscribe to a service. As I understand it that is the only way Audible works. Can you shed light on that?

You can buy books from Audible with no contract, but it's much more expensive to buy that way. There are lots of ways to get downloadable audiobooks.
How do you intend to listen to the books? What kind of player do you have?

The membership fee that Audible has in place is a deal breaker for me.

Me too which is why I prefer to buy audiobooks on CD's or mp3 CD from Audiobookstand on the internet.
