    I convert mine to MP3 and put on the computer. Never thought about the library. I do not itemize.......

    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 listen to Pandora as I set my smart phone to it and listen on my head set to any kind music I love. I will try some audio books.

    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.
