just curious, but is the iTunes store the only place to get a copy of the newer audio books? they seem a bit expensive for an audio file if purchased through iTunes...

Not sure if this is what you are looking for... Try http://www.audible.com Wife and I get a monthly credit for 2 books a month. Works just fine with I tunes and on my iPod touch... Hope this helps..

You can also use the Kindle App to go through Amazon

You could also buy them in a tradition form - remember CDs? Then sync them to your ipod from your computer. Probably not any cheaper... oh! unless you get them used... Just a thought!

sludge,

How does Audible work? I see you pay like 7.95 a month for credits. I take it one book is one credit? Is this an actual copy of the book, or will it only work though the Audible website? What I mean is, does the book become yours even if you cancel your subscription, or do you loose all your books?

http://www.recordedbooks.com. Click on consumer. You can either rent CD format or join the RBU book club. It's like a netflix for but audio books. The other option you have is to go look at your local library. More likely that not they will have the audio books there and may also offer a digital downloads.

Hey these are great resources! http://librivox.org/ has public domain books for free. While general reading might not be found here, if you need books for college classes and would rather listen instead, its a great place to find them.
