[whitespace] Hear a Good Book

Few things sound more appealing than curling up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa or glass of wine after a long day of work. But how often is that luxury put off, forgotten or denied? It's hard to remove yourself from the rat race long enough to pick out a good novel and give it a go. There is a solution. Rather than awaiting the often inevitable movie, try books on tape.

Many of the hottest sellers come in audio form, and some are read by the authors themselves. The great thing about these is you can listen to them anywhere: commuting, cleaning house, paying bills, exercising or even while you're dozing off at bedtime.

The best part is, like manual books, they can be checked out for free at your local library. They are also available for purchase at most bookstores and some music stores.
