    Anyone have ideas for audiobooks? I am looking for something either interesting, exciting, funny, or something I can learn from and not fall asleep.

    From my internet searching, people recommend Tina Fey's Bossypants, the Hobbit (seen the movie, haven't read), Harry Potter (I've read them and seen the movie so not really interested in this one), and some other books that were popular a few years ago.

    Anything that I could get that would be interesting? Maybe even particularly interesting to gay men?

    I ended up spending like $160 on 24 hours of self-help audio and some comedy. It would have been cheaper to get 24 hours of one novel.

    You can look for free audiobooks in this
    http://librivox.org/

    Not many latest books are there(copyright issues, I think), but still worth a try...
    most of them you'll find are classics.

    How about podcasts? Coast to coast to be exact. That or whenever I go on a long road trip, I usually play Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, hey...I grew up listening to those books and they're still interesting

    Audible.com is where i get mine.
    great choices, cheap, and really nice reviews.

    right now Im enjoying 1q84. Its odd, but enjoyable.


    and i've noticed, if you have to pay attention to what you are doing, go with a young adult book...and if u are doing something mindless and repetitive like driving, then go with a more adult book. Takes less attention, so u can spread yourself over them.


    I also suggest the Mortal Instruments series by Clare. Fun, gay characters, unique takes on traditional fantasy novel tropes.

    Brave New World narrated by Michael York is good.

    Maurice and Room With a View by E.M. Forster are good too.

    Actually Bossypants was one of the ones I got because other websites suggested it. I enjoyed the first, second, and 5th CDs. CDs 3 and 4 I felt required too much acting/drama knowledge to really understand why they were funny.
