Hi,

Can't you get audiobooks from a labrary for the blind? Here in the
Netherlands we have them on CD in Daisy format. I copy all the MP3
files in a direcotry on my Rockbox enabled Nano, enabled bookmarking
and I never had such a good audiobook listening experience. Thanks
developers of Rockbox, it's realy great!

I tried listening to audiobooks with the Apple firmware, but after
charging the battery resume didn't work anymore and I have to search
for where I was in the book.

BTW: I boycot shops like itunes and audible forcing me to use special
software and hardware.
