Best Audio Books

Portable media devices are good tools for listening to your audio books, but such players are specifically designed for listening to them. An audio book player typically includes features that make listening it just as enjoyable as reading your favorite book.
Many people still enjoy the original format of music books on tape. With the innovations of internet technology, the ideal music book player is an MP3 player or any other portable media device with large memory capabilities. The most popular MP3 players are iPods. Audio book players, specifically made for enjoying music books, are quickly becoming popular as well. An audio edition player is also compatible with a greater number of the audio editions available for download. iPods are typically only compatible with audio books downloaded from the iTunes service.
Audio editions are a convenient and popular way to enjoy your favorite books. While audio editions on tape are considered old-fashioned, some people still prefer this method for playing their audio books.
If you are a bookworm, like me, I’m sure you know what it feels like walking into a bookshop or a library or any room full of books. There are just so many books that you would just love to get your nose into, if only there was the time to do so. So many authors you always meant to read, so many characters that you’d love to get involved with, so many tales with their twists and turns to delve into, so many places that you can visit, so many people you can meet, so many philosophies to mull over.
This is the reason many book lovers are turning to books that speak, or audio books, to catch up on their reading. Previously known as ‘books on tape’, audio books are available in practically every genre. So whatever may be your passion in reading, you will find it in its digitized form. And just like printed books do, you can immerse yourself into the wonderful world of fiction, whether you like comedy, thrillers, historical fiction, classics, science fiction, mysteries, romances… you name it… all of which you can download into your MP3 player or iPod and listen to whenever you want to.

So, given below are the top 10 best audio books, which are an interesting mix that includes something for everyone:

So, what was one more, he thought. But the thing that is delivered to him in a black colored heart-shaped box is not a metaphorical or imaginary ghost, but the real thing. And the suit’s former owner is suddenly all over the place… staring at Coyne from his TV, looking in from the window, sitting in his car, lurking behind the bedroom door. Lying in wait with a chain hanging from one hand at the end of which is a shiny razor blade.

The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China, and What It Means for All of Us
Author: Robyn Meredith

Robyn Meredith, who is the senior editor, covering Asia, at Forbes, examines how a new gold rush has been spurred by the two fastest growing economic powers of the world, China, which is the Dragon, and India, the Elephant, and how it will affect the rest of the world. The author argues against conventional wisdom, contending that the US should not fear them. She points out that although Chinese goods are taxed by American politicians, America actually benefits from an undervalued yuan. And neither should there be any fear about the fact that most of the white-collar jobs are moving out of the US and going into India. For each dollar that goes to India, it results in the creation of $1.94 worth of wealth. Of this, except for 33 cents, all of it comes back to the US.

The Choice
Author: Nicholas Sparks

Travis Parker, the hero of this romance, has just about everything in life, a lovely waterfront home, good friends, and a good job. He enjoys the good life, going swimming, boating, and having regular barbecue parties with his buddies, holding the vague view that his style would be cramped if he has serious relationship. All of which changes when Gabby Holland comes to live next door.

Traversing a span of time that covers young love, followed by marriage, and then a family, this book’s ultimate quest is to confront us with the soul-searching query – to what extent can people go in order to keep alive the hope of love.
