One reason I get through a lot of books is that I listen to audio books on my iPod. (See lists over on the right.) I get audio books on cd from the library, load them into iTunes, then transfer them to my iPod. Easy! And it lets me carry around a dozen books in my purse. Most iPod users probably were born understanding how to use them in every situation. Not me. Figuring out how to plug my iPod into my car's stereo system took me several days. I did some consumer research and finally decided on the AVB Cassette Adapter. Now, obviously, that only works if you have a cassette player in your car. Otherwise, you have to get one of the wireless adapters that are significantly more expensive and/or had mediocre performance reviews. I wanted to keep things as simple as possible. I've been using cassette adapter thingy for a year now and it works like a charm. Also, I just ordered one for my mom and the price is down to $9.99! Good grief, that's cheap! I use the car adapter with the Griffin Technology iPod charger to keep the gizmo juiced up.
