So, my husband and I finally bought little iPod shuffles for when we go running - since we're pulling 5k sessions 3x's a week, we figured having music or audiobooks to help pass the time would be a good investment.

My question for the hive mind is if anyone has any good audiobooks they would recommend. My local library doesn't have any Star Wars books on their e-books, but I am open to ANY book suggestions. :)

When I was working at Barnes & Noble last year people tended to buy the audio books for the Jaycee Dugard biography and the Steve Jobs biography. I don't really know what's trending over there now though.

Hm, that might be a bit heavy for running "reading." But biographies are an option I bet my library carries. :)

I've found Asimov's Robot series to be an excellent read, and they've been around long enough to likely be in audio form in some libraries. Could still be a tad heavy for running. But there's always HHGTTG :-D Always good for a re-read.

Ooh, and both of those have been on my re-read list, GH. I shall have to see if they have them on audiobook!
