Thanks to representatives of Audiobooks.com, I got to try out the iTunes app, and it was easy to use. Within minutes, I had signed up and had downloaded “Insurgent,” by Veronica Roth, the sequel to the popular book “Divergent” and was listening through my headphones to a narrator read the book.

Of course, you can always use your library card and check out audio books from the Metropolitan Library System using a process similar to checking out a book to read on a mobile phone or tablet.

To check out from t he library, you have to have an app like OverDrive Media Console for audio books (and Adobe Digital Editions for eBooks), and the process of getting it to your book is at first cumbersome, but those books are always free.

If I were still driving long ways to work, a monthly subscription for a service like Audiobooks.com would be a welcome diversion for the commute. I will probably keep finding ways to use the service, even though I feel asleep testing it from the comfort of my couch.
