Re: [podcasters] Re: I Love Talking Books Is Our Newest Website
- David: If you want to get your feet wet reading audiobooks, I strongly
suggest checking out the Librivox project: http://librivox.org
They're a distributed effort to narrate thousands if public domain
works, a chapter or two at a time, and they can always use more
voices. It's good stuff.

- Actually, I tried this with my iRiver iFP790, and it didn't work
particularly well. I even got the Shure impedance-matching transformer
