Default Audio books?

I listen to them from time to time, but i noticed that some people prefer them as an alternative to reading, I myself think nothing can compare to reading, but I have been known to be wrong. What do you guys think about them?

I usually listen to audio books when I'm driving somewhere and am in no mood for music, but I don't think they'll replace reading, it's kind of hard to replace something that has been around for a few thousand years now.

I like reading a lot better. I tried to listen to an audio tape, but just can't seem to get into the story as well as I can when reading. I suppose it is just the way my brain takes information in.

I enjoy them myself, the only problem is if the readers voice is annoying you won't be able to listen to the book all the way through and you'll end up reading it anyway.

I used to listen to them quite a lot on the road, but then I found that they distracted me, and if they didn't distract me I lost the plot and ended up reading the book. I much prefer the book to be honest

Yes I have also noticed that it's a bit hard to focus on two things at the same time, well if you are a man at least, women multitask better.

iPod audio books won't go to Droid X directly. You need move the ipod audio books to computer hard drive first. And then put the audio books from the local hard drive to Droid X. to put the audio books from iPod to computer.

Does anyone know any free program or website where you can download audio books for free? I tried using limewire but they are all .wma and wont play, but if there is a better way to do it on limewire include that.
