    I listen regularly to audiobooks -mostly on the train, on my way to work- I think it's a great experience. I didn't go with audible though, because it's too expensive. I bought a few on ebay, ripped the files and re-auctioned the audiobooks... Send me an e-mail how to get great audiobooks

    The one cool thing about Audible support in iTunes 4 is disk spanning when buring Audible books. You no longer need to set start and stop times to burn an entire book to CD.

    Just create a playlist out of the Audible file and start a burn. After the CD is encoded, iTunes will eject the media and wait until you have inserted another disk. This will continue until the entire book is burned to disk. Pretty cool, especially when your dealing with a 6-8 hour recording.
