I rejoined Audible a few months ago.
I first tried it out about three years ago when I got my first iPod (wow! three years!) and found it – somewhat clunky. Audible support was patchy on my old iPod, the software didn’t work too well – and the content was somewhat sparse.
Things have changed dramatically in the last couple of years. I am now listening to several books a month; mainly on plane journeys, also on my commute into the office.
I am currently listening to Michael Palins “Around the World in Eighty Days” – I first read this at University many years ago (1992!). Turns out the whole book is now available online.
Very cool stuff – had never heard of it before. How do you use it from NLD? Any tips?
NLD 🙂 Surely you have a Windows machine for iTunes and video…
The Audible Listener can hook into iTunes; it’s an OS X or Windows app. There are no plans (I asked) for Linux support.
You can download the books as standalone and bring them into iTunes; I’ve not tried this under Wine. (Last version of iTunes under Wine I tried was 5)
