Ok, this is going to make me sound so dumb! But, I am admittedly technologically challenged, so I'm ok with that.

What I want is to be able to listen to audiobooks at the gym. I hate going to the gym and anything that will take my mind off the suck that is exercising will ensure my success. I love to read, but that isn't really feasible when running on the track, lifting weights, or any other gym related activity. So, I thought listening to an audiobook would be a good way to take my mind somewhere else.

What I don't know is how to go about making this happen.

I have an Iphone that I don't use as a phone. It is basically an Ipod touch now, it works when there is Wifi, which I will have at whatever workout location I go to.

I also have a Kindle, one of the old ones that has a keyboard.

Can I use one of those to listen to books? Or do I need something different?

I can get all kinds of audiobooks from my library, so that would be my source. Or are there other free sources? And what format do I download and how do I get that book on to whatever I plan to use to listen?

As you can see you are going to have to explain this to me like I am 4. Although, some 4 year olds are probably quicker to catch on when it comes to technology.

Thanks in advance for the help!
