    I've been biking a lot, and I love audiobooks. I bought my first mp3 player just to listen to podcasts and audiobooks when commuting. Are there any audiobooks you recommend?

    I like ones that are audio plays (for that matter I like listening to old Beeb shows, like Mitchell and Webb), and probably my fave is John Hodgman's "Complete World Knowledge", because it's very funny, read by the author in a very deadpan style, and it uses the medium to distinguish itself, it's not just "someone reading the book aloud".

    I like audiobooks too. I've always preferred listening to stories than music when travelling. But audiobooks come into their own at night when you're too tired to read but can't get to sleep, a life saver for insomniacs like me. I usually buy audio versions of big, dusty books that I'll never get around to reading. I recently bought War and Peace (61 hours :eek:), might save that for a really long journey.
