I love to read, but I also love listening to books on tape or CD. In fact, I listen to something almost everyday as I travel to and from work. So these days one of my favorite websites is called Audible.com. I can get audio books without having to buy them at a store or wait for them to arrive in the mail. I get them immediately through the Audible.com website. I just choose the books I want to hear and download them to my MP3 player or my computer. Or if I want, I can even burn them to a CD .
One cool feature about Audible.com is their Audible Listener Program where you can join and get one book and one magazine per month, or two books per month. If you sign up for a year, they will even give you a free MP3 player.
So if you would like to improve your listening skills and hear some popular books read by native English speakers, I highly recommend a visit to Audible.com.
