Okay so my job requires some windshield time every now and then... and I have an addiction called XC biking...

Okay so when I am on the road I have yet to be able to marry the ability to drive and read at the same time, so I really enjoy a very well read audio book when I get the chance. I am almost finished with as far as I can go with Jim Butchers the Dresden files (and please if anybody says that they liked the show I will puke on them), my local library has increased the size of their audio book selection because I keep requesting more for the patrons (okay for myself but they get to use them after me :D ). I have Turn Coat on order and then it is off to find a new one until the next one comes out which is this month.

The Dresden files audio books are read by James Marsters and if you don't know who he is don't feel bad... These books are not for kids as they do contain language and some rather steamy :blush: scenes... 'cough'

Okay so for my second set I really enjoy the series by John G. Hemry under the pen name Jack Campbell called the Lost Fleet. This is a awesome space military/naval scifi series. The reading is pretty good and you can find all but the last book which comes out this year on audio book, sooooo you could start now and be ready for the ending.

Last but not least is Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson... I cannot say anything about this book that will make any sense so just get it and enjoy a great scifi novel.

Please no spam about how mature you are and how you like to actually read your own books because I do that as well but this for folks who have to make do with a situation that will not allow that.

I really look forward to hearing about your favorites and maybe making them my own.

Not sure if this counts, but I got hooked on short story podcasts from EscapePod (Sci Fi), PodCastle (Fantasy) and PseudoPod (Horror). I guess you could download them onto CD unless you can plug in an MP3 in your car.

Awesome I will look into that... I have used pod casts in the past as well when my audio book supply ran low. Thank for your reply. :cheers:

Something else is old time radio (OTR) programs... I joined a group years ago that is dedicated to keeping old radio programs around... The only thing we do not do is programs that are still owned such as The Shadow.
