Save space, money with digital audiobooks

| August 01, 2012

One good audiobook can eat up hours upon hours of boring drive time, but you may not want to store stacks of CDs in your cab or mess with switching out discs while driving. Digital downloads — which go straight to your mp3 player, smartphone, tablet or computer — are much easier to deal with. With the right adapter for your device, listening through your truck’s speakers is a cinch. With more than 100,000 titles, this is one of the most popular websites for downloading books. It’s subscription-based, with monthly or annual plans. The monthly plan ($14.95 after an introductory rate) provides a book a month and any purchases in addition are 30 percent discounted. The service is compatible with iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and more than 500 types of mp3 player. The subscription comes with a free daily subscription to audio versions of The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal. Visit or visit your smartphone’s store to download the app.

Check back on Sunday, Aug. 5 for information on iTunes.
