  1. I'm comfortable with e-books, but won't become a true enthusiast until I invest in an e-book reader - next Christmas I think!
    If I drove alot I'd get a subscription to audible.co.uk. The price is very reasonable and I'm told the service is good. Apparently the selection is better on audible.com but you'll have to choose a country other than Ireland or the UK to be allowed to download!
