books on .mp3

Finally!

Libraries where I live offer books on .mp3 on a CD disk.

I love listening to audio books when I travel. I am loading up now for my next trip (Mexico & Central America). Three books ready for upload to my mp3 player:

  • The Worst Journey in the World, by Apsley Cherry-Garrard
  • Running with the Bulls, My years with the Hemingways, by Valerie Hemingway
  • Northern Lights, by Nora Roberts
  • Ripping books from CD, in comparison, was slow & painful. Death to the audio CD.

    Use the IMPORT function on your iTunes (or other inferior) music software to get the track order sorted correctly.

    I am very happy with my Rio Cali waterproof mp3 player — but the way to go today is with the iPod Nano, the first good iPod.

    TV You’ll Want To Pay For

    Rick’s opinion: TV is ripe for a fall. We pay $50 a month or more for a service which with we are generally dissatisfied.

    Apple’s Steve Jobs personally reinvented the music industry with iTunes. The winners are recording artists & the fans. The losers are the middlemen.

    I don’t think Apple will reinvent the television industry. But they will be remembered as the company who first alerted the general public.

    Bluehost.com

    I just signed with Bluehost and have been very impressed. US$6.95 a month for hosting up to 6 domains.

    I bought those domain names (including RickMcCharles.com) through Yahoo.com which had a sale price of US$4.95 a year. I bragged the price could not drop any lower.

    It did. Yahoo later offered domain names for US$2.95!

    This is almost FREE — my pricepoint! If interested for yourself, check the sites below:
