I enjoy audiobooks when doing not-noisy house work, but I don't enjoy them when I am driving; they can be distracting from the task at hand, for me. If I'm being driven, I love them. I would loved to have had e-books in college to keep from having to lug around those heavy textbooks. That would have been a godsend. Seems like there would be a service where you can have your textbooks loaded in ebook format, if you were willing to pay for it, with the basic ones already available in ebook format. That would be a worthwhile expenditure.
