  • There are a number of free online resources that provide books in text-only, audio-only, and text-audio combination format. Audio CD ’s can be imported into iTunes as a series of MP3 files. iTunes 8 provides tools to easily combine, sort, and identify any related collections into audiobooks, including a series of recorded lectures. Audiobooks can be delivered as podcasts or downloaded as a Zip archive from web sites. Be aware of the copyright implications when distributing audiobooks, especially those purchased commercially.
