    My library has an app that let's me download audio books for free. It's just like checking out a book in real life. It has a return date.

    Listen to it when I'm driving. Addicting.

    I listen to recordings of old radio shows from the 40s and 50, Sherlock Holmes, Jack Benny and the like.

    You do not need to itemize to deduct charitable contributions . If I remember right that is .

    Self employed so per diem comes off that income.

    House is paid for.

    I could listen to red storm rising 3 or 4 times before I got bored with it, and put it on the shelf for a month or so.

    Seriously guys, get red storm rising. Lol.
    Funny, I have physically read that book at least 15 times. Have on audio book also

    don't think im up to 15 yet, but it is several

    I enjoy most all of Clancys' work though I lost touch with his later stuff. ill catch up, surely sorry he passed on

    Cauldron by Larry Bond is an enjoyable read along the lines of RSR, ive read several of Bonds novels and they are ok.

    I have yet to listen to a book, I guess ill have to try it out.

    Been listening to them for years. Anyone remember Audio Adventures? Rent the cassettes (yes, cassettes) at one truck stop, return them at another when you were finished.
