I’ve been doing a lot of driving over the past few months, and I figure that if I’m by myself, it is just wasted time. To use the time wisely, I listen to audiobooks. Unfortunately, I am far from well-off enough to buy a new audiobook every time I go for a drive, so I tried to find ways to get them for either free or cheap that isn’t unethical. Here is what I found:
Local Library: I have been getting the majority of audiobooks from a library website in my parents hometown. So far I have “checked out” 5 books from there. I enter my library card number, pick the book I want, and download the audio file provided by the site. Well worth it. (For you SLO locals: SLO Library).
Project Gutenberg is a collection of books that have lost their copyright, and can be freely distributed. The site’s highlight is the ebooks, but the audiobook collection is great too.
Hopefully you can get some use out of one of these.
PS: I’ve been working on Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else. It has been an interesting read (listen?) so far, and I will be recommending it along to others.
