    It'd be nice to like plug it up to some speakers or maybe a car and just listen to a book.

    You can. There are many books on LibriVox. It is like the Project Gutenberg for Audio Books. Volunteers create them and share them for free. Some readers are awesome. Some, not so good. There are also some audio books on manybooks.org.

    Most of the books are out of copyright books. There are collections of horror, science fiction, poetry, and other genres from modern to ancient times.

    Just find a book you want. Copy the RSS feed link and paste it into Dr. Podder. Then you can download the whole book or do it one chapter at a time. Dr Podder automatically places bookmarks when you close it so you don't even have to think about it.

    If you search for audiobooks directly inside Dr. Podder you will find many read by machines - I find them horrible. If you see one by Librivox though it is probably by a pretty good, to excellent, reader.

    I recommend The Virginian by Owen Wister. It is the very first western novel. It has been made into several movies and inspired some TV series also. The reader isn't great but she speaks clearly and is pleasant to listen to (except when she tries to do a Virginia accent - painful). The novel is awesome though.

    Can't go wrong with authors like Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde.

    How to copy an RSS feed:

    Hold down the orange/white button and click on the link. A box will pop up with Copy URL. Choose that, then open Dr.Podder. Click on the plus sign. Choose Enter Feed URL. Hold down the center Gesture area button or press the middle of the gesture area and type v.

    Here are a few to test out: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

    For a novel like Emma by Jane Austen, there are many versions. If you don't like the readers in one, try another one:
    LibriVox Emma, by Jane Austen (solo)
    LibriVox Emma by Jane Austen
    LibriVox Emma (version 3) by Jane Austen
    LibriVox Emma (version5) by Jane Austen

    Here is The Virginian: LibriVox The Virginian by Owen Wister

    Here is a ghost story collection. These are usually a team effort with different readers doing each story. <![CDATA[Librivox: Short Ghost and Horror Collection 001 by Various]]>

    There are many audiobooks available on the Internet for download and if they are in .mp3 format, you can use Music Remix (from Preware) and it will let you use bookmarks.
