If you enjoy reading but do not have time to read books at home, and you spend a lot of time on the road, listening to an audiobook is often the answer. Audiobooks, which used to be "books-on-tape," have come a long way and are now downloadable from iTunes. If you own an iPhone, you can use it to listen to audiobooks while on your daily commute. Getting the audiobooks to your phone follows the same process as transferring music and podcasts to your phone.
