Books on Tape

Not much to "write home or anywhere else" about here lately. Just a lot of working. I'm sitting here now downloading a "book on tape" onto my Ipod Shuffle. ( That's the small....simple version of an Ipod)
It will hold about 9 hours worth of music or book on tape. I can usually get a whole book on it.
I listen to my radio earphones during the mornings, but, switch over to my book on tape during the afternoon and evening work sessions.
The "bitter half" hates the thing, because I can't hear her if she hollars for me to "go fetch her something".
Last week I dropped by the camers shop to "price out" a new zoom lens for my Canon Rebel XT digital camera. My old regular camera had a 50 -200 zoom which I really missed.
Well, I was able to get a new 70-300 zoom for $200. Now, all I need is time to go out and shoot something with it!



  2. I like the books to play on my laptop while I'm workin. Ear plugs pop out of my ears and headphones are too 70's lol. 70-300? Can it take down ah deer? Jist joshin ya.

  3. I've been a bit of a holdout on the issue of audiobooks until fairly recently. I use an MP3 download service (MP3 Rocket) which offers audiobooks in that format and the titles I've found there are fairly impressive. Problem is, they take forever to download, so I haven't done much in that area.

    Since I'm not heavily into photography, I'm guessing the price you got on that lens is a good one. Hope you get some great shots with it and we'll get to see the results soon!

    Good luck!
