free audiobook--> John Muir "My First Summer in the Sierra"
- I'm usually too tired to raise a book to my head, but 2-3 audio chapters sharing a headphone with your tent mate is just brilliant. Don't overlook these FREE audiobooks, especially the hilarious:
While not all librivox recordings are listenable, the above is expertly intoned by one Adrian Praetzellis with the patience and humor of an archaeologist, which he is.

- Just a reminder that there are way cheaper MP3 players than the IPod and they often have the advantage of replaceable batteries, avoiding the lack of good recharging options on-trail. I can get many nights of listening to books at night out of a single AAA battery with my SanDisc Sansa. You can get them for under $25 with 2 GB capacity, plenty for "reading" purposes if you burn the CDs at high compression.
