    I have just signed up to this – hoping it might make bus journeys a bit more interesting (and I am violently ill if I so much as glance at a newspaper on a moving vehicle, I vom watching the Onedin Line etc etc).

    So has anybody tried this, and can you recommend some titles ? I am half way through a William Gibson but I think it is too complex I keep getting distracted, now totally lost and can’t figure out how to back track a few chapters.

    I got the girl with the dragon tattoo as a free download from the guardian with them. Totally gripping but I listened to most of it driving up and down to Edinburgh and so thats two 6 hour chunks.

    If you want something short try a history of the world in a 100 objects. Its a podcast from bbc radio 4. Not sure if they are still about but they were 15 min long and almost all fascinated me.

    I also really enjoyed heart of darknes by Joseph Conrad as an audio book, again driving to Edinburgh.

    How about some short stories?

    Short stories – good idea will look for some.

    I find I can manage to chew the first few pages but then my mouth goes dry and I lose my appetite.
