How to Download an Audio Book

by Contributor

Audio books allow people to listen and enjoy a good book at their leisure without actually having to pick up the book and read it. Here's how you can download audio books and play them back on your computer or an MP3 player.

Find a commercial or free audio book site on the Internet and choose a book.

Save the audio book file(s) to your media device. This either will be on your computer, for example, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or your player's software, such as iTunes, to download it.

From there you can download the file into your iPod or MP3 player.

If you want to share it, go to your podcast Web site. Log in, go to your profile and upload your file.

When your file is completed, save and submit it. From there you will be able to link it to other Web sites.
