You’ve heard us talk about dozens of great book recommendations for gamers on the show. But when can you find time to read them? Audio books are the answer, and there is no better resource for audio books than Audible.
The D6 Generation is extremely proud to have Audible as a sponsor of the show. We take great pride in the fact that our sponsors represent the best in their industry, and Audible is certainly a fantastic example of the best way to enjoy books while commuting, on a road trip, at the gym, painting, or even organizing your favorite board game.
“I’ve been a happy Audible subscriber since 2004 and built up a library of over 270 books! Their service has allowed me to enjoy books wherever I go no matter what device I use. And their library is second to none. You’ve heard me compare Malifaux to Steven King’s Dark Tower series. Want to read it? It’s on Audible. Looking for more obscure geek books based on Halo, Mass Effect, or Starcraft? They’ve got those too. What about steam punk like Bonecrusher or Leviathan? They’ve got those as well. And you can’t beat the price. I give Audible a 2+ with a re-roll. ” – Russ Wakelin
But the best part is you can try the whole system out free for 14 days and get a free audio book which is yours to keep.

I've been with them - the UK version for about 4 years. I've only ralrey needed tech support but when I did I have found their phone support very helpful.There prices are good, often having sales as well as the subscription system. I tend to mainly listen on my computer but it is possible to burn to CDs, though as with commercial audio books on CD you need one disc per hour, though blank CDs are quite inepensive. They do provide software to download. I have heard it is possible to burn 'virtual' CDs and then transfer en-masse to a single disc - depending on size of audiobook - but I've never been able to figure out how to do that.One can also hook up one's MP3 player/iPod to an in-car sound system via an adapter, which is what I do as saves on having tons of CDs lying about.
