I was reading this article and thinking it's a good thing. Pricey, but if you drive a lot, it is a deal compared to the price of buying audio books on CD. Then I read more and it looks like this is a streaming-only service.

I know that some EBooks signed out from the library just expire and disappear off your device when the deadline hits. Audiobooks.com would be smart to do this, as some people just can't stream. I wonder if people who have used alternative online sources for audio-books (where instead of streaming you can download and replay when reception is non-existent) can speak to other services. This would also allow people to get the files at home, and literally replay anywhere.

I don't mind if they cap how many books you can have signed out at once, and would appreciate recommendations.
