Are you a fan of listening to books instead of reading them? (If so, I'm incredibly jealous -- I don't get enough quiet time to listen to anything, lol) I must admit, though, I know many book lovers - and they all say that sometimes, the experience of "listening" to a book is so much better than "reading" it.
Signing up with audible.com allows you to use your amazon.com account to download audio books to listen to at your convenience. Even better? No need to put a good book down! You move from cooking to running to commuting, and now your book can, too: switch back and forth between the Kindle version and the Audible audiobook without ever losing your place.

Here's a few recommended by WendyBird:
My favorite audiobooks are:
The Help (Octavia Spencer who just won the Oscar for Minny also narrates the part)
Southern Vampire Series (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood)
Water for Elephants
The Hunger Games series
World War Z
Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series (the first 3. They switched narrators for 4 & 5 and they're not near as good)
My 13 yo DS also loves to listen with me. Our faves to listen to together are:
Percy Jackson & the Olympians series
The Bartimaeus Trilogy
Artemis Fowl series
Skullduggery Pleasant series
