One can acquire free books (see Project Gutenberg thread) in text format and one can waste paper printing them out or strain their eyes reading on a monitor. One advantage of book text files is obvious: copy and paste. Another is doing research with a good word search engine.
audiobooksforfree.com (<A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.audiobooksforfree.com>click here</A>) provides FREE downloads of a variety of older and recent books in mp3 format. Beware that these free audio books are not commercial free. Yes they can be embedded with up to 5% advertising.
Advertising free audio books can be purchased from audible.com (<A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.audible.com>go there</A>). Check out their monthly subscription plan.
You can be reading the lounge while listening to a good book, provided you multi-task.
