What about it, APH staff? A Bookport for the shower?
Now that's what we need, a waterproof BookPort! Thanks for making me think of this! Grin!

My listening habits have changed quite a bit since I discovered podcasts. I used to devote over 75% of my listening time to audiobooks, about 10% to text, and the rest to spoken-word entertainment such as vintage radio shows and the like. Now it's over 50% podcasts, maybe about 20% audiobooks, and the rest unchanged. I listen to some music podcasts, but do not copy much music-only content to the Bookport. My Bookport goes with me wherever I go (except for the shower--I do have some limits believe it or not) and I've been known to call "pockets" "the Bookport holder". From the time I get up until it lulls me off to sleep, my Bookport is an integral part of my life. It is my tranquilizer while I wait impatiently for my rides, my news source during non-busy times at work, and my escape hatch once I get home. Not that I don't have a full life doing lots of other things. But in the gaps (and there are always gaps) the Bookport is kept quite busy!

So far most of the time I use my Book Port for reading audio MP3 books. I was wondering if people could give me feedback on the following questions.
What percent of the time do you listen to audio books?
What percent of the time do you use text-to-speech to listen to books or materials?
But percent of the time do you listen to music MP3's?
How often do you use your Book Port?
Thanks for the feedback -- Jim -- Michigan
