Audio Books

I'm a big fan of audio books. They are great in the car when you really can't do anything else. Once when I had a long commute to work audio books really saved me from the utter boredom of driving. They are also good when working out at the gym.

I used to subscribe to which has a great selection, but is a bit pricey. I've found some free sources of audio books. One is LibriVox. They have a pretty good selection which is always growing and the quality is really good.

Also, you may be able to download free audio books from your local library website. Here is one I use:
Califa Digital Library. There are probably other sites also.

Sometimes when you just don't feel like reading or are unable to then audio books are great.

Dharma Bums

Jack Kerouac's Dharma Bums is one of my favorite books ever since I first discovered it many years ago. It' s spontaneous writing style is refreshing to read. It's full of fun and adventure and a healthy dose of speculation on the meaning of life.
