Audio Books

I downloaded an audiobook from the library through Overdrive for the first time. It was very easy both to download and transfer to a iPod. All I had to to was follow directions (although I suppose this could be difficult for some people...). After downloading from the library website, the book automatically opened in overdrive. From here I could listen to the book on my computer, or transfer it to an iPod. To transfer it to the iPod (or any other audio device) all you have to do is plug it in and click on "transfer." If I remember correctly, (I did this about a week ago) I had to choose where I wanted the files transferred, and I simply selected the iPod.  The only moment of doubt was when I disconnected the iPod and I didn't see the title under audiobooks. I put the book onto a iPod classic, and it ended up being under albums, and each chapter listed as a song.

I don't know

I felt as if it has been a while since I posted anything, I just don't know what to post. I have blogger block.

A brief overview of my reading life these days:

I have been reading a lot. I finished A Game of Thrones yesterday and today I started a book called The 101 Most Influential People who Never Lived, by Allan Lazar, Dan Karlan and Jeremy Salter. It is about exactly what the title says: the 101 most influential fictional people (and monsters and and stereotypes and cartoons and puppets) in western culture. I'm enjoying it. It's a quick and easy read, which is exactly what I need while waiting for A Clash of Kings.
The past few books have been ebooks, but I put myself on the waiting list for both ebooks and physical books for the next few books I want to read. I'll take whatever comes in first!

And that's about all.
