I find that lots of people have portable devices. I don't know if there are any CD players that are completely skip-resistance, but if there are I was thinking that there would be some great deals on them, seeing as how mp3 compatible devices are taking over. If anyone knows of any places to get deals on CD audio books feel free to share. Me personally, I'd like to listen to audio books on an mp3 player. I can listen to it in the bathtub with no problems, while I walk or workout. For me, it's a lot easier to work with than with CDs (and I find it funny how when CDs first came out, they were so wonderful, now they seem good for sentimental mementos, like wax records).... Mmhm... *nods* Which one do you purchase more of, mp3 audio books or CD audio books?
